Finding our own summer
Icelandic summer is characterized by festivals around the island peaking the first weekend of August with the grandest festivals. This summer will be different and more subdued, but it will not affect the Icelandic festival uniform. This uniform has evolved and lasted for decades: a combination of outdoor clothing, wool sweaters, and fisherman workwear. It is Icelandic summer after all, and you must stay warm and dry.
We headed to Flatey Island. Flatey is an island in a cluster of about forty large and small islands and islets located in Breiðafjörður on the northwestern part of Iceland. Beautifully kept old houses in cheerful colors line the dusty path through the settlement of the island. Most houses are occupied only during summer. In winter, the island‘s total populations consists of only two families.
