Iceland Circle

Freya Hoffmeister and Greg Stamer have done it! What to say about their impressive achievement other than repeating Freya's e-mail?
"Just finished paddling around Iceland with Greg! 33 days, 25 paddling days, 8 weather days, 1.620 km, 65 km average, 10.000 pictures, 100 lighthouses, 100 headlands, 10.000.000 birds, huge cliffs, black desert sand, plenty of water and overall a great time! Some educative experiences on the edge, but no serious incidents, thank goodness. Toughest part of the trip? Waiting more than one day for appropriate paddling weather... :-))"
