30.08.08 – Reykjavik – Frankfurt – Tel Aviv
By Garik and Lena

  • We woke up this morning at 0615 AM, much better than yesterday! We wanted to pack our staff as quick as possible to get the #14 bus to BSI. It was rainy and it was difficult to pack quickly. We carried our backpacks to the shed near the entrance of the camping ground. We had tea with sandwiches for breakfast. The gas balloon was still not empty, but we had to finish it before the flight! So I stood there for half an hour, burning it, waiting for the gas to be over, but it didn’t! Finally, at 08:50 I gave up, we had a bus to catch, I pulled the balloon out as is, and of course I was covered immediately with liquid that smells bad. Now I see the benefits of a more expensive gas balloons that have a screwing. Read the rest of the entry »

29.08.08 – Skaftafell – Jökulsárlón – Reykjavik
By Garik and Lena

  • We woke up at 0100 AM; completely dark, weird noisy sounds came out of the trees… Something like water, rain, I don’t know. The tent moved from side to side! Somewhere further it sounded like an iceberg braking up or flood or something like this! Surrounded in total mystery and darkness we were scared of drowning and of the unknown… The movie we saw the evening before did its job. Lena tried to open the door of the tent but she closed it right away because it was so dark outside and because of the wind that break into the tent. We had hard time then, trying to sleep in these conditions. The fear and the dancing tent that looked like it will crash on us any moment, made it really hard to fall asleep! I was on the side that the wind came on the tent all the time, so somehow I kept it steady a bit; I wonder how it was if I and Lena would switch places. At some point I decided that if the tent didn’t collapsed on us till now, it will probably stay that way till morning, and tried to get some sleep. Too optimistic, it was impossible to fall a sleep! The wind only got stronger. It was blowing constantly and not like earlier, when it came and went… We kind of got used to the noise, but the tent seamed to surrender to the wind! A side of a tent at some point actually laid on me! So at 0500 we made a decision! We are packing our staff! I ran to the toilets and I was the first to wake up among all the other campers. When I ran back to the tent, I started to see other people crawling out of their tents… not much but still, I guess that even North Face tents couldn’t take that much! Some of the tents almost flew with the wind, luckily they were held by their ropes. Read the rest of the entry »

28.08.08 – Skaftafell
By Garik and Lena

  • We woke up in the morning, yet another time it was cold! Lena didn’t enjoy her sleeping time tonight and I felt the cold ground all night long , because I didn’t inflate my mattress well the evening before. The weather seemed to be calm this morning, of course this has nothing to say about the rest of day! Read the rest of the entry »
