05.09.2009 Iceland‧§ Day 12 § Vik

拍攝器材:Canon 300V + Tarmon A09 + Tudor 200 We started getting light shower when we were closed to Vik, and it was windy with a little bit of rain when we got off the bus at Vik gas station. It was very quite, we could barely see anybody to ask about the direction to the hostel. At last, we found a German couple who told us the youth hostel was at the end of the path on the top of a hill... Oh dear... Well... I started getting used to the fact that hostel was located at the farthest point from the bus station, with 50% possibility located at the top of hill. To make the situation even more challenging, there were crushed stones at the end of the path. Yes, crushed stones again. I was stupid, I should not have brought any suitcase with us. I then learnt a lesson which I should remember until my last day on the earth. After we setting down in the hostel, we asked the staff where we could buy some food - the only supermarket in Vik had closed already, around 14:00pm which was before we had even arrived at Vik, because it was a Saturday! And the tourist information had closed for the season! Oh my god, almost all the shops were closed. We almost had to eat plain rice - luckily there was some eggs left by other backpackers. We walked down to the town center (the population of Vik was around 300) to look around, and went to the souvenir shop, the only shop which was opened at that time. My sister had bought an Icelandic head band and a hat, whereas I bought a christmas angel decoration. We went back to the hostel after shopping because the rain had become heaviler, no longer suitable for exploring the town. The hostel was quite a lovely wooden hostel. We met a group of three traveling together, two Japanese women and a Danish women whom we had seen in the Hofn youth hostel the day before. We together had a nice chat at dinner time. They gave us some of their vegatables and let us to tried some of their green tea they bought from Japan (very nice). They told us that they were girl guides and they had met in some internation girl guides event (I could remember the exact name of it) around 40 or 50 years ago (again, I could not remember precisely). Their friendship had lasted for all those years, that was really, really great! The Danish women had also kindly gave us some suggestions of beautiful places to visit in Norway and Copenhagen, which I got them written down on my travel plan. We went to bed early as we were tired after a few days of rushing around and we needed to wake up early in the next morning. 拍攝器材:Contax T2 + 過期 2 年的 Fuji Reala 100
