Iceland – 2002

Back in 2002 I visited Iceland with my classmates. It was an awesome trip as I remember it. We’d booked an off-road bus and traveled Iceland and slept in tents in different places.

So why do I post this now? Is it because the last post had pictures from there or is there something else that I’m not telling you?

Here are some pictures from 2002 shot with a cheap analog camera and some Kodak ISO 400 film.

Our travel itinerary was something like this. Landed on Iceland and went to Reykjavik to buy some food and snacks. After that we headed out to our first stop at Tingvalla, Thing Fields. On the second day we’re off to Gullfoss, Golden Falls and in that general area looking at geysers and other cool things. Drove around in our bus to other awesome spots like the Blue lagoon etc, etc, and then back to Reykjavik for some whale spotting and recreation.

Háifoss neighbor Glanni.

This was one of my favorites places on this trip. The picture below might even be the best one I took during my time on Iceland in my opinion.

Here we are down by the Atlantic looking at the Puffins nesting there. You know the black and white birds with colorful beaks.

Eyjafjallajökull

These are the tents that we slept in. At this particular place we had a nasty storm coming in during the night and rain and wind struck our tents hard. In the morning only two tents were still standing upright if I’m not misstaken! And when I woke up it was like being in a swimming pool… In this picture I’m in the foreground and I think I’m doing some dinner preparations.
