good morning iceland!

with dave snoring last night, it was hard to sleep - it was an unusual snore - it comes and goes lol :D so i had to kick the headboard of the car every 20 minutes for him to shift position and stop snoring :D lol - maybe he was so tired from the trip - but i looked at ian and he was as always calm and collected - sleeping like a stone :D lol

the first one to get up the in the morning was erik and lieke - saw them from the window of the car going around, i looked at the time it was almost 8 am but it was cloudy and dark, hmmmmmm i guess we would be stuck with this weather all the way in iceland - i couldnt help but feel dissapointed - if it would rain all the time. i woke dave up and said to him that it's almost 8 and ian - i was surprised that he automatically got up like a remote controlled robot lol, i asked them how did they slept and they said GOOD arrrrrghh jealous! lol.

maike looked like a scandinavian doll here! i likey like it! hahahaha

we all dressed up, i was still a bit groggy from lack of sleep and getting sick last night, but i feel i little bit better - my bones were not aching anymore but i have colds and my nose was perpetually running all the time! arrghhh. i didnt even notice the beautiful view in the horizon eventhough ashi and mark said too look. it took some time for me to actually look and when i did - it was - WOW beautiful - the rays of the sun fighting through the clouds straight into the sea! and i realized that were camping near the sea (windy) and under a hill and i looked at the surrounding - it was a small village! i actually saw the farmer again in his house looking at us curiously.

erik started to boil water and i asked him if i could have some - but first i gotta wash my thermos - there was a running spring water in the farmland but it was cold! arrrrghhh it couldnt wash away the saturated fats of the tomato soup it was icky washing it - the lard hardened even more with the cold water! arrrghhhh i made darjeeling tea and drank it - it smelled and tasted like - YUCK.

the guys packing things up!
when i got back the dutches - maike, lieke, erik and wilmke were so fast in deconstructing the tarp and arranging all the things - out of the corner of my eye - i saw david b. watching in admiration and disbelief :D lol

i went to amber and rj - and amber was the target of jokes from the bandit car - that she was exploding gas the whole night hahahahah hahahahahahahaha i was scared to get near amber lol. apparently i decided to switch car - i want to sit on the shit lada because my ass really hurted in the ass killa lol and i need to rest my back properly - hey im getting old! lol - so did amber and rj - who was apprently kicked out from the bandit hahahaha - so mark and ian who were in the shit lada - drove with the bandit and ass killa.

after having breakfast - we cleaned the place and erik was upset at me for throwing cigarette butts on the ground - he lectured me about one cigarette butt would pollute 10,000 liters of water blah blah blah something like that lol - so i said to him, i will not do it iceland but in germany :D lol hahaaha

then we all brushed our teeth in that cold spring water - i swear i thought i had anaesthesia in mouth! it got numbed with the cold water! before we left - we made a thank you note to the farmer who let us camped his farmland - hand in hand i went with janja to his house - but he wasnt there - but we found a small opening through his door and put the letter inside!

after everything was set with ashi on the wheels of the shit lada - we headed off and on to our next destination - the icebergs of jökulsárlón!

im dreading being with rj in the car arrrrggggghhhhhhhhhhh
