The drive here was one of the longest we had undertaken on this trip. It was going to take us a good few hours to come here. We woke up early, made breakfast for one another and prepared snacks and sandwiches for the ride there. The boys made sure we had enough food and water to last us days, just in case. I focused on making sure we had our chargers and music-devices.
Vik is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. And it’s the first black sand beach I’ve seen in real life. Bonus, it is home to a large amount of puffins! I’m super excited about puffins.
We saw so many of them – but we kept our distance – and focused on taking photos and walking through the rocky beach. I remember reading that you aren’t really meant to interact with the puffin populations, but the temptation was there.
And on the drive back, we drove through a town called Hella. And listened to “Hella Good” because what else do you do in that situation?
