I'm going on my second summer holiday. This time were going to the other side of the Westfjords. I will go to to Ingólfsfjörður with Dad on Monday morning and then Mom will take a flight to see us later. They seem to think it's important to take me places where there are no Internet, phone or even mobile network access and the best thing is if there are hardly any roads. They do have the nicest swimming pool though so it will have to do. The local swimming pool is located on the beach and it's so local no one works there except the cleaning lady. Therefore it's open 24 hours and you put the entrance fee in a box in the locker room. For those of you who don't read Icelandic the directions to get there from the home page is to drive until the road ends. Just so you know if you are interested in going there sometime.
The airport where Mom's going has a natural hot tub in the cliffs just by the sea where the waves splash in on windy days. Here you see the Tub Warden that work with scaring off the tourists. I'm only joking. The land lords don't want people to go swimming though.

There's not much happening here at the moment as you might have noticed.

Mum and Dad had troubles finding my milk on the trip. Babies in the countryside just drink regular milk and eat skyr, dried fish, grass and dirt so I got to try all that.

This is how stylish I looked when we were picked up by the rubber boat after the stay in Jökulfirðir (the glacier fjords).

Korpudalur was the best camping site on the whole trip. We had the entire field to ourselves, hot water, one bathroom per person and a private shower. We also got to use the washing machine to wash my clothes and a huge 50-person barbecue. And we did use our tent I just had to take a nap when we were just leaving and we had already packed everything.

I'm going to the Westfjords. For those of you who are not so much into Icelandic geography it's the head that sticks out in the northwest named after it's many fjords. Luckily for us they have scanned the fjords for polar bears after having to kill 2 polar bears earlier this summer that came over with floating ice from Greenland. We´re going to visit Jökulfirðir north of Ísafjörður
If we run into any mobile network spots I will post some pictures from there. They put up signs where there is a slight chance to use your mobile phone. It is almost Swedish don't you think to have signs of those so that you don't have to run around looking stupid with your phone in the air searching for a network?
