We arrived in the early morning on September 19th at the pier in Reykjavík. The weather was still GREAT, sunny, no wind and around 7 degrees. Most of our passengers went a shore here, but one passenger decided to continue on the next trip to Bergen in Western Norway.
My girlfriend, Anna came on board and had breakfast with us. We brought a dog sledge with us from Greenland which my father had built in 1964 when he was at SIRIUS and later on the sledge was modified and used to transport us children after a snow scooter when we lived in Mestersvig, 1975-78. The sledge was taken apart and stuffed into our small Golf (long sledge!!!) and we drove it to our garage at our apartment in Seltjarnarnes. Here it will be stored until we one day return to Iceland. It will then be refurbished and painted and brought into the living-room where it will serve as a nostalgic icon of my familys´ time in Greenland and as a couch.
We will now stay in Iceland, having vacation until the 28th and then it´s more or less back to work.
The blogg will be updated with photographs as soon as I get the pictures sorted and then the blog will be more or less dead until I go to Greenland again (most likely next year ;0))
