Whale watching! occupied our minds since the start of the day. We had to reach Husavik from Myvatn before 3 pm, i.e. where our whale watching adventure was due to set off from. Hence, wasting no further time other than the morning freshening up and breakfast we headed off straight to Husavik.(Our mornings there usually started at 12pm for those of you I got wondering, not going by the sun since there was practically no time the sun used to fully set but by our own timings since we used to sleep not before 3am).Husavik - a small town of Iceland, where the houses were exceptionally decorated; had made way to our list for the epic adventure we were to witness, by Whale Watching!North Sailing is the cruise group we had chosen to take us to this hour long adventure mid sea to witness the whales as studied in geography and GK books before. Well here we were so lucky that we witnessed a sleeping whale that too real close, so much so our boat would have been rendered like Titanic had it decided to act agitated. An hour long mid sea venture rendered us famished, and we hopped into our, first this trip, a fine dining restaurant that went by the name Gamli Bakur.The restaurant offers great food, Icelandic delicacies. I am talking Icelandic sea food here, brilliance it was that went into our stomach.

In this video, we cover the 4th and last part of our travel. Having completed our round trip through the east-central part of the country, this time we headed north along the western coastal region. The sun was high in the sky with intermittent floating clouds - a perfect day weather wise. The drive was much more scenic. We took a short stop at Borgarnes for a quick breakfast/lunch before entering the mountainous roads.

Town is called Stykkishólmur and from the lighthouse on the hill, you will be able to overlook the whole town in a bird eye view! Not only that, you could also overlook the fjords and glaciers along Breiðafjörður, AND THE FLOWERS ARE BLOOMING! *insert heart shaped eyes* The entire journey(13hours) was so scenic! Totally understand why it is called Iceland in Miniature.
