At the very beginning of our road trip to Iceland in the strange year of 2020, we have made a short side trip we have always wanted to do since 1990. Landmannalaugar, in the Iceland’s Fjallabak, the land behind the mountains.
A small family re-union as the easing of the pandemy measures allowed traveling in Poland and Slovakia again.
