Day 8: Mývatn to Fáskrúðsfjörður
After being rewarded with good weather and a clear night in Mývatn, the next day turned out to be somewhat miserable. However, Iceland still has some amazing sights in the rain. We noticed how the water pooled on top of the mountains and started to overflow. This created hundreds of small waterfalls in the fjords.
The stretch between Myvatn and the Eastfjords is very quiet and barren. There really wasn't another town until Egilsstaðir so that's where we filled up on gas and replenished our supplies. From there, we went off the ring road to reach some of the small fishing villages. We ended up at Fáskrúðsfjörður for the night, a village with a strong French history. Our hotel is a restored former hospital for French fisherman between 1903 and 1935.
