They warn you in all the books that, although the main route round Iceland is mostly paved and in good condition, some of the other roads are no more than gravel tracks. The 2 hour journey from our hotel to our next stop, Hveragerdi, is over a bumpy track on which some vehicle with caterpillar tracks has been travelling recently. So the gravel is bad enough but the regularity of the bumps is bone-shatteringly awful. Plus it’s miserable weather: misty, rainy, cold and with such poor visibility that we can’t even ooh and aah at the scenery which I’m sure is spectacular!
