Rome Day 3 - Forum Romanum

The third day was going to be the toughest one: a visit to the ruins of the birthplace of Rome, at the center of the center of the world. Tough, because the surrounding two hills block out a breeze, the ruins offer no shade, it's the middle of July, and all the stones bounce the heat back in your face. Come well prepared for a few hours in the oven, it's worth it!

Rome Day 1 - Castel Sant'Angelo

Next to the Basilica is Castel Sant'Angelo, a two thousand year old mausoleum with a fortress added on top of it, with papal apartments added to that, and a statue of the angel himself to wrap it all up.

Rome Day 1 - Basilica - Part II - Climbing!

If you ever get to visit the St. Peter Basilica in Rome, make sure you queue up for a chance to climb all the way to the top of the dome. It kicks ass.

Rome Day 0 - Evening Walk

In July I went to Rome for five and a half days, and I'm afraid it's time to now bore you to death with a truckload of souvenir shots :P I am not terribly happy with the quality of the shots, but hey what else is new.

More of the same misery... Not much to say about it, the photos show enough, I hope.

Breendonk - I

Ok, before doing Rome, it turns out there's a set of photos that I took several years ago, but that never got uploaded. Unfortunately it is it a gloomy subject -- the World War 2 prison camp Fort Breendonk.

Dimmuborgir Hike - III

A few boring pics to wrap this up. To get back to the car I followed the main road that circles lake Myvatn, unfortunately the views weren't very exciting.

Dimmuborgir Hike - I

The first weekend of June I was up north near lake Myvatn, and there's a nice hike there that takes you from, basically, "the gas station at the top of the lake", through a field of lava rock, up a nasty hill, and down again into Dimmuborgir. The weather was great (relatively speaking), a great hike, about 7 to 8 kilometer one way... I should dig up the Garmin info :) Here are some of the sights along the first half of the hike.

Hofsós

Hofsós is a tiny town sort-of-but-not-really on the road to Akureyri. What makes it worth a detour is a cool pool that makes you think you're swimming in the fjord -- and, as it turns out, a neat little harbour.
