When we got to Keflavik, we took the FlyBus to Reykjavik (1800 ISK per person). I slept the entirety of the bus ride, as I sat beside a German tourist who kept nudging me with his elbow because he couldn't stop yapping and taking photos inside the bus. I was too tired and sleepy to protest so I let him be. I think he was just too excited to be in Iceland. I was too, but at that point in time, sleep is more important.
After a 45-minute bus ride, we finally arrived at our guesthouse, which was a small house smack in the middle of Reykjavik. The house was cozy and warm; it was more than we needed as we crept to the living room's sofa to sleep some more. Our host, Bedda, was so welcoming and friendly. We slept mostly on our first day in Iceland. We managed to walk around Reykjavik that night, since it doesn't really get dark until 1 AM. I will talk about Reykjavik in a different post but today, I want to show you Skógafoss Waterfall.
Skógafoss Waterfall is about an hour and a half drive from Reykjavik. This waterfall is 60 meters high and counted among the most beautiful of the country; I think Gulfoss is prettier. There are at least 20 more waterfalls that cascade down the mountain slopes above the Skogafoss and it is easy to walk along the river to see them; there are paths and steps available for hikers in the area as well.
My interpretation of Skógafoss Waterfall.
A rainbow appeared as we walked around the area. Here's two tourist taking a photo with the rainbow.
Trying to find the rainbow's end.
At the other side of this river is a sheep farm.
It would be awesome to sit there and listen to the powerful voice of nature.
And while the Skógafoss Waterfall roars from a few steps, sheep graze and nap on the green, quiet grass.
