I still have a few more things to post about our time in Iceland, but now that we’re back home, we have crunched some numbers for those of you who have been following our adventure. Here’s an “Iceland by the numbers” summary that Mike put together:

I have also created an annotated map of our travels. It details our route, our modes of transportation (mostly bicycle), our campsites, our hosts, our trek, and more. With each marker placed and route drawn there is a little bit of information about that part of the adventure. This may help you better visualize our journey. Enjoy!

This is a static image of the map. If you follow the link below, you can interact with it and check out the annotations.
