Hólmavík was the first stop, to try out their new, super luxe swimming pool (given to the Hólmavík community by a couple of local artists) and have a look around.
Next up we visited Siglufjörður, where I discovered that my great grandmother became a part of history when she worked there during the herring adventure. The herring adventure is an important part of Icelandic history as fishery has been a vital part of the nation´s income from the start.
I had a great time walking through the herring era museum, and delighted to learn a little more about my family heritage. This trip was a wonderful way to relax after a hectic summer at work, and I never tire of travelling this beautiful country.
