the original landrover defender group! maike (taking the pic) big matt, mike, wilmke, me, janja and amber! :D grabbed from maike! :P

before we left the outskirts of reykjavik - erik decided to change car - he doenst want to sit on the land cruiser because of jeff's driving! lol he said he felt dizzy - we we welcomed him inside the defender family! lol. such a beautiful day in iceland! WARM, BLUE and ALMOST CLOUDLESS SKIES - the color of the landscape was so beautiful!!!! every red tones was in full shade! i love it! where was the rainy/COLD weather that everybody was talking about?! i dont see any! ha! hahahahahahahahaha eat that :P

we had so much fun in the defender - music was blasting because we have radio and big matt put on his mp3 player which was full of 80's and 90's song and i couldt believe that it kept playing to madonna's like a prayer! hahahahahaha. we were dancing and singing at the back of the defender - it was fun driving out of reykjavik! the blue sea refelcting the blue sky contrasted with the bare mountains and red hues and tones of autumn! it was perfect!

passing through the small town of mosfellsbær, we saw mt.

thats what were gonna hike!
esja and the esjan mountain range :( pity that we wouldnt be doing the hike! suddenly from big matt's mp3 player - played a familiar song! in a big country!

we happily or i chanted more loudly the lryics of the song :P -  in a big country, dreams stay with you, like a lover's voice, fires the mountainside.. stay alive! and i hope we really would stay alive after camping for 8 days! lol

we sang heartily to it! and i decided it would be my roadtrip song! :D while wazching and wondering if the other cars specially the lada would have any entertainment on its own hahahha hahahahaha poor car. but i kinda like it! i dont know why - looking at it feels like home for me coz our family jeep for over 20 years in the philippines looked similar to it! hahahahaha *tears* lol.

singing along and taking crazy pics inside the defender - suddenly we stopped!!!! maike just decided we do the hike and she saw hiking paths in the esjan mountain range! we took a left turn and followed a gravel path - it turned out it would be an introduction to off road driving in iceland!

happily chatting inside the defender - were ready to take on our first challenge! hike the esjan mountain range! hurrah!
