Catch up with the story so far by reading about Day 01 here.
Day 2 in Iceland began to the sound of a rushing waterfall. After spending a few moments exploring the rocks along the edge of Gulfoss, we hopped in our car and headed back to Reykjavik, stopping to visit more ponies along the way.
Back in Reykjavik, we broke open our date night budget (yes, our budget travels with us) and blew everything on a nice dinner out in the city at the snug little restaurant Þrír Frakkar, which is apparently a favorite of Jaimie Oliver's. Naturally, we had to order all the craziest things on the menu: shark (utterly foul), whale steaks (delicious and RED), puffin (sorry, loved it), and local Viking beer.
We headed back to the Reykjavík Campsite to "camp" again, this time sleeping in the back of the car in the parking lot.
