Heading up country has never been so nerve-wracking

We are now in Egilstadir, a small town on the east coast, and are heading to Husey for the night, where apparently many seals reside. Yesterday we saw a lake with loads of icebergs (Joe will no doubt be more exact about where, how and why) and there were seals there. I saw them with their small seal heads. Awesome.
Last night was spent in Hofn, where we had a meal in a cabin restaurant and saw NORTHERN LIGHTS! It consisted of a long green strip across the sky, with some less bright ones accompanying it. It was so cold that my nose was numb though. Yesterday morning it had snowed heavily when we woke up in Vik, so driving from Vik to Hofn was hard-going for a while.
We have also seen waterfalls with and without rainbows, glaciers, ice-caps, big waves (sea), black sandy beaches, fjords, drove through a mountain tunnel and today I drove over a fallen piece of rock which has buggered a hub cap.
