Sometimes on a road trip, things don’t go entirely to plan. Today was a big day – a long drive, with two national park visits. We wanted to get from Las Vegas to Oakhurst near Yosemite, but rather than take the boring interstate route, we decided to take the scenic route via Death Valley and the Tioga Pass. This route would be about the same number of miles, but take a few extra hours and be considerably more interesting. The Tioga Pass is the ro...

Oh, man, I feel for you two! You haven't been lucky with the weather at all. Still, memories are made of that stuff. I remember when we arrived in Berkeley, California in 2007 the weather was rainy, windy and cold in September, as a 7 month drought broke. The cafes were full of locals saying they'd never seen anything like it!

This is an American elk.
Confusing, as what we Europeans call elk is a moose in the US.

Alright, so we did the Grand Canyon and it’s no secret that I wasn’t exactly blown away by it. Yeah it’s big, but it’s too big; you can’t really get a handle on the scale of it and you can’t pick out many details. Yeah it’s got a river in it, but from the rim trail you can only see a sort of distant brown smudge. Dave was a bit exasperated by my attitude to the thing, so you can imagine his trepidation as we set off today on the six hour round tr...

I'm with you on that wrt Grand Canyon. It's good, but really it's a lesson on all that is ruddy coloured. Yosemite is much more spectacular, IMO. As is death valley.

Introduction
Ahoy there fellow traveller!

There are many Daves, but this particular Dave is a bit of a nerd, a bit of a science geek, he likes videogames and arcade cabinets and Star Wars and will talk for hours on Rat Kings and their threat to civilisation.

He likes beer.

He has a Phd in astrophysics but sold out to The Man and currently works as a web developer. There's a novel in him somewhere, but it would probably be rubbish.

He never made it 6ft, to his eternal chagrin.

Hotel Leifur Eiriksson is a basic, no-frills hotel that makes up for a lack of sophistication with charm, personality and above all, location. The staff are very helpful, and the hotel is well served by tours and shuttle buses. The general feeling is one of a backpacker's hostel than a city centre hotel - not necessarily a bad thing. Our room was on the fourth floor, in one of the corners and it wasn't massive. In fact, I initially had head-room issues in the sloping roof ceiling, but soon got used to it. It was generally clean and well stocked, albeit very basic. Breakfast was good enough, offering buffet-style continental and cereal options, as well as tea and coffee. In fact, tea, coffee and cold drinks were available all day round - just help yourself from the machine. Something we and other guests used a lot. As for location, the hotel is a stone's throw from Hallgrimskirkja, which means you'll never have trouble finding your way back (the church is visible from all over the city), and you'll see a constant stream of fellow travellers wandering up to take photos. One word of warning - if free wifi is important for you, then you may need to look elsewhere. Hotel Leifur Eiriksson does have wifi, available on all floors, but it seems to work intermittently.

Our only regret with booking Hotel Edelweiss was that we didn't stay longer. Everything about it was perfect - it looked charming, the rooms were large and well maintained, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is about five minutes walk from town, through a lovely park, on a very quiet road. It has free wifi for guests, and a lovely garden in which to enjoy your breakfast or a late night drink. Highly recommended.

The food was great, especially the sheekh kebab that I had as a starter, and it seemed relatively inexpensive. However, I had the feeling we were a little rushed through it, with courses appearing even before the waiter had finished writing our order down!
