    A few pics from the Westman Islands, they are so beautiful and strange that they deserve a separate chapter from the rest of Iceland.

    When you walk the first street you already feel like being on another planet.

    Here you can "almost" see every island, like a Japanese garden

    I didn't manage to come very close to the puffins, they are moving further north due to the global warming and the migration of their food.

    Seeing that lone house on the rock formation in the last photo...I immediately had some thoughts:
    I bet the view is fantastic
    I bet its cold
    I bet its windy
    Where do they get water
    And where does the water go afterwards
