Day 8: From Stykkishólmur to Flateyri ...

A new day of clouds and rain. Go to the fjords of the Northwest, one of the least visited areas of Iceland, where solitude and silence become fascinating, wonderful!

The fiords are linked by road one after the other, there are no people, no noise, only cold, wind, and nature ... you and Iceland. Indispensable !!

A good Friday for all!

Day 9: From Flateyri to Hvammstangi...

This week I start with a photo taken a few minutes later when I put the last photo on my stream..

Another cloudy day with a poor rain. We returned for the other side of the fjords of the Northwest, another bath of peace and wild nature...just for clean our souls...

Sighs recorded in the memory...

Enjoy the day!!

This is the abandoned rural home Kaldá. It's located by Flateyrarvegur in North Western Iceland. Unfortunately I don't have any background info on this one, but it's one of those places where it appears that the owners just vanished leaving everything behind. Judging by the movie ads in the newspaper (Jurassic Park and The Fugitive), this place was abandoned in 1993. Furniture and appliances look like they're from the 60's though. When I approached a flock of curious sheep darted out of the house giving me a bit of a startle.

The harbor at Flateyri, a little village with 180 inhabitants in the Westfjords of Iceland. A book store, two cafes and a fish processing plant, that's all. Of all the vacation spots I've been, I'd say this was definitely the most relaxing. You could hear throughout the village when a single car or truck was moving; otherwise there was just the sound of wind and the ocean. I'd love to go back and stay a bit longer.

In 1995, an unusually large avalanche buried homes and killed 20 people in *Flateyri* (note: the village is on the other side of the fjord, out of sight here). This disaster was the second deadly avalanche in the Westfjord region that year.

Ten months earlier, on January 17, the small fishing village of *Sudavik* had suffered a devastating avalanche in which 16 residents lost their lives.
