I made my first trip to Iceland in the summer
of 1996. I had always wanted to see Iceland, all of the photographs
and movies that I had ever seen made it look so spectacular.
In 1996 I had just under 3 weeks to stay. I toured throught the center on the Kjolur route, saw some of the Westfjords, and rode around the Snaefellsness Penninsula. It was everything I had hoped for and then some.
This web journal is about my trip in the summer of 1999. This time I had 4 full weeks. Again, as in 1996, none of my friends could make the trip so I would go it alone. This trip circles the main bulk of Iceland.
I traveled 2000 km by bicycle, covered a little distance by bus, camped every night, met some great people and once again had the time of my life.
On the next page you find 2 dozen thumbnails, each of which will take you to an area that I cycled through. The Map page will open a separate window, for your convenience. You need not go through the journal in any order.
