Weekend in Westfjords – part 4

Standard

Bíldudalur – Reykjavik

It’s time to finish this story…
As I was saying last time, I was dropped off at the intersection of route 60 with 63. And to my surprise, there were some cars actually going my way but none of them picked me up.

Camping, of course or if I was lucky, sleep one night in a hostel.
