Since I told you all about how Doddi and I spent my birthday I thought I would also share how we spent his birthday which was less than a week after mine. My birthday was of course a little more special this year, since I turned 30, so I hadn’t anything planned for Doddi’s big day. But since we had so much fun on my big day we thought we had to go somewhere and do something on his day, so we went in our Super Jeep and drove to Laugafell.
But of course we didn’t want to take the normal route, instead we wanted to try a route which most people only drive during the winter time, and after going there I can understand why no one drives it during the summer. We spent hours and hours “rock climbing”, which is not that easy in a big car like ours, so we spent a lot of time hanging out the windows making sure our big tires didn’t hit the biggest rocks and got scratched or even worse cut.
For the first couple of hours or so it was kind of fun to drive there, especially since this was a route that Doddi’s grandfather lade the tracks for many many years ago. But like I said after a while we got a bit bored of it, driving at a speed of 3 km/h.
It wasn’t exactly how we had planned it. But we did make it to Laugafell, which was our goal, but it did take a lot longer time than we had thought so unfortunately we didn’t have time to take a relaxing swim in the nature bath there which was the thought from the beginning. Still we did get to see a lot and all in all it was a fun day, although I can’t say that I would want to take the route again any time soon 😉
