Iceland : Goðafoss, Akureyri

En français
Happy new year everybody.

To start the new year, here is a little more of the Iceland travel.
On the way to Akureyri, we stopped to the waterfall Goðafoss.
It is called like that because when Christianity was declared the official religion in Iceland, the statue of the ancient gods were thrown in it.
We then follow the river Skjálfandafljót to go and see the waterfall Aldeyjarfoss but the road got to bad after a while wand we need to get back.
We arrive in the afternoon at Akureyri.
That's the first city we visited since the begining of the trip. After the big Europe tour, that's a change in our habits.
