Nothingness and massiveness - Spectacular motorcycle ride along the coast of Iceland [S4-E12]
Good morning guys! It's quite late already, 09:30 I went to bed pretty early last night because well I was really tired, so I went to bed like eight o'clock and then at nine o'clock a truckload of Spanish people arrived and they kept it going till 11 o'clock this morning so I thought you know well I'll just get up a little bit later instead this morning but then they get up at six o'clock in the morning and starts chattering and you know screaming, yelling. Well not screaming but you know just being loud in general. Some guys want to go to bed earlier and some guys want to sleep longer so I know if you're gonna get up earlier than you know the majority at least have the decent to show respect and just you know be quiet It's a little later now than it was supposed to be but. I'm gonna get some breakfast and stuff now I think.. Oof, this wasn't the right spot was it? Yeah, yeah it is First I'm gonna get me fueled up just so that's done. There's a bunch of other bikers there as well I wonder who those are Bye That was a bunch of German bikers They are going home on the same Ferry as me on Wednesday so I guess I'll see them then. Now
Loki have full tank and I need full tank, just per procedure. So I'm going back to the cafe I was yesterday because I don't think there's a lot of a bunch of other places you can go at this time it was supposed to be open at nine so yeah let's try the coffee something eats and then head off okie dokie on the way again Alright so we are starting our first detour already and it's right up here and it's about a half an hour drive up in the valley not sure exactly like how far I'm gonna go but. I was told by Hjörtur that this is a nice little detour to make and we got plenty of time so That's what we're gonna do Let's see. Up here? Yeah
Kerlingardalur Oh it must be close to Kerlingarfjöll perhaps The mountain that me and Hjörtur went up to. I think that was called Kerlingarfjöll and this is Kerlingardalur, so, Kerlingar Valley We'll find out. Let us see. It is anyway pretty nice to get off the main road Hello swans. I'm so impressed by the the bird life here on the island there's
so many birds everywhere there are seagulls and swans and geese and whatnot the puffins and yeah That looks potentially slippery Nope, it's fine Check out this Whaaat Whaaat The road surface keeps changing and changing from sandy, black sandy stuff to Big Rocks to really bumpy roads you know. But hey what's new right These rock formations are so peculiar I mean it's probably lava right? But. Everything here is lava Look at this and it's all it's quite hard like it's not like super Solid Rock but it's not soft like Sandstone either yeah awesome It's time for coffee, isn't it? It's been like three hours since the last one after all There is something "kaffi" That is our place You can never get enough coffee.
Never ever Yeah this is nice And we got some road work going on Guess there is some lose gravel Yes it is Can I pass on this side? Right over there on the left side, you can see the beginning or the end of a massive glacier And then there is also of course the glacier in the mountains there I hope you can see that one on the camera I thought there was supposed to be a view point somewhere here Where you can ride all the way up to the glacier I might have been mistaken That looks sick and then on this side it's just this Black Desert it's nothing. This is every time I think that you know what else could Iceland possibly has to offer. And then there's stuff like this showing up. And what is this? Nothingness and massiveness Iceland I love you! I freaking love you.
I definitely have to come back sometimes Look at the glacier. I think we have to check it Svinafjellsjökull I guess is the name of the Glacier there Oh my God it's massive! And this is only like a tiny tiny little bit of it can you believe it? What if that whole thing melted I wonder how much water it would produce At least I get some exercise on my trips Going to check out all this stuff, climbing rocks and whatnot. But it is usually worth it every single time so We're getting close to the massiveness right here oh my goodness this is awesome Look at this It is massive Wow. So here you can see the glacier from this side And then we are going to a third side near Diamond Beach, in about 20 minutes I can't get over how big it is Is it still recording? Yes we are, no faults today Let's ride fast as [ __ ] under this really heavy rain Clouds Fast as [__] meaning not that fast, it's my Tenere it has 72 horse powers and is fully loaded so Might have arrived at Diamond Beach There's a lot of people parking. I think there's like a huge Lake oh yeah, yep. Huge lake right.. Oh my goodness! oh my.. oh my God This is insanely crowded We can stand right here can't we. Yes we can
This is definitely one of those bucket list places where you have to go. My videos won't do it Justice at all and of course drones are prohibited But oh my God it's so pretty. It's so pretty Has the battery run out? Probably. Anyway headed to a camping, about an hour to go
I'm freezing, the wind is cold coming over the glacier there Am Is seriously gonna have the glacier as my neighbor sleeping tonight? Hello guys from inside my tent. It is about nine o'clock in the evening I arrive at the camping um have a little bit eat and just chilling and then I was almost on my way to go to sleep before I remembered that I had forgot to show you on a map where I went today you know I've been doing this for two weeks already and still I keep forgetting silly stuff like this so anyway let me show you in a map all right so that's where I slept last night am I 13 as you can remember in Vík uh start the day with a little detour up in this area and that was super nice and green and all the strange black rocks continued following the Ring Road right here and end up all the way up here actually that's where I'm right now so from here to here all the way around quite the stretch actually um Diamond Beach is where is it in this area I think is it yeah yeah around there anyway so tomorrow I am continuing probably riding all the way up to Egilstadir. My ferry leaves at 20:00 o'clock on Wednesday today's Monday so I got all day tomorrow and then quite a bit of time also on Wednesday to ride so what I think I'll do The cap for my pen. Anyway what I was saying what I think I'll do is I'll just um find a camp somewhere close to the city tomorrow and then I will just roam around in the area on Wednesday until the ferry leaves I think second to last night tonight it's kind of sad all right um I gotta crawl out of my sleeping bag to go to the toilet and then II'll go to sleep that's the worst part because it's quite cold it's probably like seven six seven degrees outside pretty chilly pretty [__] chilly so getting out of the sleeping bag to like use bathroom and stuff Not a fan. Anyway thank you for watching also this episode sorry for being such a messy head sometimes it's just what it is yeah I am what I am it is what it is all right hopefully I'll see you guys tomorrow so you know until then adios bye bye see you later
