the only contact i had with the ocean, except for in reykjavik is when we went camping. the last morning we went for a walk, and after one minute we came across a black dessert! well, at least it looked like that, as far as you can see nothing but the sand and some dry grass and shells.. after a half an hour of walking suddenly we saw the ocean!! some of us were actually brave enough to go swimming (crazy enough if you ask me...). anyway, the beach is really amazing, i collected some of the small round black stones and gave them to my friends back home - great souvenirs!! cheap and original ;)
