We spent last three days in Bergen before heading back home. We did some diving there and found out that the waters outside Bergen offer excellent diving.

Faroe Islands

We spent three days on the Faroe Islands while Norröna was visiting Denmark. We arrived in the middle of the Faroese national day festivals and found out that there are some serious partying going on in the small remote islands. We also managed to do some more diving and sight seeing.

Black day

Today we dived El Grillo in Seydisfjordur and had some (small) hardships. Our Iceland trip is also about to end and we are in a school / summer guest house waiting for Norröna to take us to the Faroen islands.

We visited one of the most geologically active area in Iceland - Krafla. It is a strange place where one can see clouds rising from the earth and the color of the earth is unreal.

After dive!

On saturday we did some light trekking and one dive near Olafsfjordur. After diving we had some AD with our host and some local divers. I can still remember the horrible taste and smell of rotten shark! Special thanks to Sigurdur who offered us lodging at his house for three days - the icelanders are a bunch of nice people!

Strytan is one of the strangest places we have ever dived. It is a underwater thermal chimney that raises from the depth of 70 meters to 15 meters. You can see and feel the warm water coming out from the top and cracks.

Image is nothing - experience is everything

Arrived Iceland on thursday. Too many things to see and to do in only a two weeks. Also pictures do not tell the real story about the nature here. I'm getting less and less interested in touching computers and internet so this log will not be updated so often anymore..
