We left off at the end of Day 7 having climbed a mountain, and then driven in the dark to the famous Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. We were also really hoping the clouds might clear so we’d be able to see the aurora that was predicted. When we finally arrived after a seriously long day, we were dismayed to find the whole area absolutely crawling with photographers in the middle of the night.
When we last left off, we were making Thai Curry in the camping area at Skogafoss waterfall. We’d been going non-stop for 4 days with only 7 hours of sleep, (total) and it’s safe to say we were exhausted. Luckily when we looked up the weather forecast for the next day over dinner, they were predicting rain.
