Leif visits where “Leif the Lucky” was born.

 

Almost all of the creeks in Iceland had a few fishermen on them; but not this one.

Harbour at Búðardalur

 

Casey Norman. This is near Búðardalur where Leif Erikson was born. This is a re-creation of the house that Erik the Red (Eiriksstaðir) built, who went from there to discover Greenland. He was the father of Leifur "Heppni" Eiríksson (Leif the Lucky)

 

 

Amazing Icelandic landscape

 

Near Stykkishólmur there is an old boat wrecked near the shore.

 

The Icelandic sheep always like to travel in threes.
