Iceland 15 July: Laugarbakki-Borgarnes

The fact that the World Harmony Relay Run in Iceland was due to end tomorrow was present in everyone's mind as we tackled the 115 km that awaited us. We got fresh runners from Reykjavík and so many hans (or, should I say, many feet) made light work. The weather was fine, a little wind coupled with mild temperature and a little bit of rain.

We noticed rather heavy traffic travelling northwards from Reykjavík - no doubt people on their way to weekend or summer holidays. We also noticed considerable traffic among the birds on the road, but they were mostly trying to avoid us.

At noon we reached Holtavörðuheiði highland, upon which we got a clear view of Eiríksjökull and Langjökull glaciers, while being overlooked by Trölladyngja mountain. From the highland we went to Norðurárdalur valley, which has a special connection to Ganagane. His grandfather was born here and Ganagane himself spent many a summer here as a young boy travelling the countryside and herding sheep.

At the end of the day we reached Borgarnes town were we stopped for the night. Frank, however, had to catch a flight back to the Netherlands early next morning, so a few members of the team travelled with him to Reykjavík were a dinner party was organised at a short notice. We said our goodbyes to Frank that night. He has been an important team member and his love of Iceland has touched us all. It is a pity, really, that he will miss the last day of the Run.
