Wind down the Fjord (Travel Theme: Wind)

There are so many things that come to mind when I think of our three years in Iceland – the friendly people, the unique scenery, and of course the incredible WIND. There weren’t always fierce winds but at times it certainly felt like it!

Wind down our fjord!

On this particular day, 75 kph winds were whipping up the waters upon our fjord, creating not only many a white cap but quite the mist in the air from all the spray. Tucked safely in my warm house, it was quite the sight to behold!

This is Reyðarfjörður, on the east coast of Iceland at approximately 3 o’clock on the Icelandic map. This is where we called home for our three years and would go back in a heartbeat if the opportunity ever arose. 🙂

Where's my Backpack?

    • So, so interesting… from “everyone” going on holidays over the summer, to the autumn birds hanging off all the gutters until they were needed, and the new year’s eve empty fireworks boxes used to frame doorways so everyone could see who used the most fireworks, lol! 🙂

  1. Well! What a surprise this post was! I think all your followers might just need another post to help us to get a sense of why this special place so became to mean so much to you that you would be happy to return at anytime,despite the cold and the winds. I have to say, there seems to be such a pure beauty to the place…….but there must be more…

    • Hmmm… I’ll see to see what other photos I can scrounge up from our time there as sadly most were stolen (both laptop AND my backup memory sticks). But I shall see… this could be some more of the much needed inspiration I require, lol!

      • People have such interesting lives and are so well travelled. When I blog I am amazed to see where people were born and where they live now and how it makes them who they are.
