EskifjörðurThe first stop on our way was the Godafoss Waterfall, locally known as the waterfall of gods. Though not at a very good height, but its semicircle arch gives it a magnificent look. This place is closely connected to a major historic event when the entire Iceland decided to adopt Christianity as against then existing paganism. It is said that after the then chieftain decided to adopt Christianity, he took the statue of all the gods and threw them into the fall as a symbol of conversion and letting them go. Our brief encounter with Iceland's history at our host's palace in Reykjavik made this place more special for me. After spending some time there, we were back on the road.
