Day 2 travel experience in Iceland was astonishing. Travelling along the most popular route from Reykjavik, The Golden Circle. Today we will travelling down south of Iceland, towards Vik. We will be having a full day excursion to "Westman Island" via ferry.
Excursion "Westman Island"
One of the best kept secrets in Iceland. A beautiful island surrounded by mountains, islands, volcanoes and seabirds. Also home to the adorable puffins. Have always wanted to visit the puffins, unfortunately, winter seasons the puffins will migrate!
The ferry ride was horrible. The wave was really rough. We were basically flung around! Seasick kicked in almost immediately after the boat took off. Luckily we were quite experience in managing this, we quickly struggled our way down to the cinema rest room, usually around the center of the boat. Where you can lie down comfortable on the cushion chair, in a dark room with movies to watch. Thank god, felt so much better and managed to arrive without throwing up our breakfast!.

We had a great time in Westman Island. Quite the beauty. They even had a large gold course. But i must admit that winter was not the best season to tour this island. The boat journey was extremely rough due to the bad weather. Since we were on the island it was very windy. The town was very quiet due to cold weather. Worst! No puffins!! Good thing we found this restaurant, Canton, owned by a local man and his chinese wife. Was pretty good, although expensive! Atleast some comfort food.
