Roadtripping the South Coasts of Iceland

This October me and my wife took off to Iceland. We rented a car and headed east from Reykjavik. Here is a little photographic story of the trip.

In advance I would sincerely like to aplogize all the icelandic speakers for all the mistakes I make writing the names of all the beautiful places.

A funny thing about Þingvellir is that you can see two tectonic plates, Eurasia and North-America, drifting apart from each other there.

Since it was Sunday and not that much to do i Reykjavik, we decided to go and see the Akranes lighthouses. We had been informed that there are the most picturesque lighthouses.
