Fondest memory: My fondest memory of Ísafjörður had to be the dinner we had at the Hotel Ísafjörður. On the one hand we were sad our friends didn't join us for the meal, but on the other hand, the foold was excellent, the restaurant windows had a spectacular view, and we got to meet a retired couple who were Icelanders. He was a former surgeon and former professor at a medical school in Boston and she was a former flight attendant for Icelandair. We had a great conversation about travel and just about everything else.
That should in no way diminish how beautifu the surrounding landscape was around Ísafjörður!

schielen's General Tip
Fondest memory: The first morning of my trip to Iceland I woke up in my little tent. Although it was only 6.45 AM, the sun was already high in the sky, just a little bit blocked by a morning mist, a sea-fog. Slowly the memories of the night before came back to me. Slowly because of the drink(s) we had. The most popular on Iceland is 'Black death' (you might imagine why!), whitch is made of potato-peelings! This was one of the few drinks (alcoholic ones that is) in the three weeks I spent in Iceland. There are two reasons for that. One is the price. A normal beer in a normal pub will cost you US$ 25! The second one is that you will find no pub (nor any other shop) in the greater part of the country.
