A lot of roads are gravel roads in Iceland, so we thought it would be wise to rent a 4WD. Nothing special, but it does the job very well :-) Unfortunately my (male) travel companion Joeri (of 33 years old) has no driver's license, so he lets me do all the heavy lifting the next few days. Pff, men.... (yes, you Joeri, I know you're reading this!)
Our first stop along the way was at Þingvellir (the Þ is to be pronounced as Th) a rift valley marking where the North American and Eurasian continental plates are physically tearing apart, and it really is a beautiful place to walk. Þingvellir also has significant importance to the Icelanders because it is the place where they have held their Alþingi, the annual parliamentary gathering, for centuries.
