Mývatn


As the weather currently is on the nasty side (until tomorrow) with loads of moisture and wind we decided to keep a low profile and just enjoy our time… Among the pleasures is breakfast in bed Smiley

It is really amazing how tourism picked up – exactly 3 years ago we were here at the very same spot and there was no-one (ok, perhaps 1-2 people). Now it’s packed – what was going on in summer I dare asking…

Nature is still serene

and the sky makes a good contrast (to the normal plain boring white)

Everywhere the same scenes… They even bring them in tour busses now

Nice formation

As dimensions usually only become visible when you have a known comparison, here is one Smiley

Typical weather at the moment (from mid-tomorrow on it is dying down for at least 6 days SmileySmiley)

Nature baths in Myvatn. They increased prices (as everybody else) again and now it’s a steep 25 € per person to enter… I presume they will kill their tourism industry with that one day; but in the Blue Lagoon you even need reservations now. Insane…

Here it’s not so bad (still), but picking up, too… They are hardly able to cope with demand for lockers, hair-drying, etc..

The baths are powered by natural sources

Wonderful vistas

20:30 (in August the baths are open until 24:00)

What are all these people doing at the campsite? Again – 3 years ago we were there with perhaps 3 other campers and 5 tents. Now it’s 4 times the amount (if not more…)

Anyhow we are in mushroom heaven. Didn’t have so many for ages and they are just delicious. Mushrooms for breakfast, dinner and lunch Zwinkerndes Smiley
