Undanfarnar vikur hafa veri skrtnar a essu leyti og g hef oft liti landakorti og / ea myndirnar sem g tk ferinni og klipi mig svo handlegginn og sagt vi sjlfan mig, " j, g var raunverulega arna, g er binn a fara hringinn kringum jrina !

Suma daga fru tta blasur a skrifa um atburi dagsins, en ara daga bara 5 lnur ! Og stundum var jafnmiki um a vera innan dagsins, en g kannski ekki eins stemmdur andlega. En essi fer lklega eftir a meltast lengi og mun g njta ess.

Now there are over four weeks since we came back from the big trip around the world, but it feels like it was yesterday. But what is strange, that it is first now that I feel that I am realy back, - with both feet on ground ! There is an old saying among indians, that it takes the soul weeks or month to arrive, after you self has arrived. I truly belive that now ! Last couple of weeks has been very strange and I have looked on the map of the world a few times and pinch me in the hand to convince me of that this was not a dream ! yes, I really did this, rode around the world ! I have also been reading alot from my diary and it is fun to read what was on my mind the moment I wrote that page. But it will take along time to digest all the things that happend and I will enjoy that to the fullest.

Were home and a big dream has become a reality, unbelievable but true! Ive had this dream for several years now but I decided to attempt to fulfill it in Desember when I started preparing for this trip. This has been one of the best decisions Ive made so far and it was even better to get Einar with me. This trip took 95 days and we travelled 31.946 km so be exact. Our bikes, Yamaha XT 660 R have been great and it wouldnt be a problem taking another trip like that on them.Ive told people that Mongolia was probably the most memorable country but there are so many highlights from this trip that I couldnt possibly pick on thing and I cant describe it in words. In few words, this trip has been a great adventure where we go from being angry and irritated to being increadably happy and amazed. I heard people saying that everything went very well for us and thats of course true. But we were of course well prepared and qualified to tackle all problems. What one sees as a problem, another sees as a challange and thats what Einar and I did. Im also wondering if I should do a slideshow because many people are interesting in seeing more pictures from the trip. Ill see what I can do.The last day in New York was really long but we killed time by going to the movies and being around people. People werent too happy about it when I didnt want to say why I met the famous Jessica Parker and Im sorry...I just coulnt tell you because I was going to bring my wife a signed perfume and other things and I couldnt give that away. So it wasnt more exciting than that, I just went in line at Macys where I met the actress and I talked to her for a while and bought this present for my wife. So thats that. But the trip home went well and we got lucky with the seats so we had enough room but we couldnt sleep though. Probably all the excitement. But it honestly was a great feeling to walk through the arrival gate and see my little girl, where she then gave us all a yellow rose, and my family. The road away from home is the road back home, says in an Icelandic song and Ive got to say that from day one Ive been on my way home again and Im happy to get away from accidents and injuries. Hrafnhildur, from Channel 2, was at the airport early in the morning and interviewed us all, me, Einar, dad and Skli. Dad was really happy about everything and Ill give him and Skli that they did a really good job and it was really fun to be with them the last km. Other bikers showed up at the airport too and it was a lot of fun to have them following us to MotorMax and to the finishline. There were 29 motorcycle following us from Keflavk to Reykjavk. Tryggvi, our brother, made sure that we could get our bikes from Icelandair Cargo and hes been a great help during the trip with the transportation and were very grateful. We started the bikes around 9 am and we got to MotorMax around 10 am where we got a really nice and warm welcome from all the people there, relatives, friends and the people at MotorMax. I just want to thank everybody for their support and its nice to know that some people have enjoyed my blog. Im probably going to put some more pictures on the blog but this is probably the end of my travelling story. Its been a lot of fun to blog regularly for friends, relatives, bikers, and travelling enthusiast.But until next time Thanks for everything! =D

En miki er etta n gaman samt. N er bara ca slarhringur eftir ar til vi lendum Keflavk og verur hver klukkustund lengri og lengri og mnturnar lengi a la. Dagurinn dag lei svipa og gr, a er, rfa um gtur og verslanir New York borgar, og njta ess a horfa mannlfi og kaupa eitt og anna smvegis. Mamma og Pabbi bin a haga sr eins og fyrirtaks tristar og fara Empire statebygginguna og t eyju ar sem frelsisstyttan er. En v miur komust au ekki upp frelsisstyttuna, v enginn hafi sagt eim, a n arf a panta me tveggja daga fyrirvara, ef maur tlar a fara upp ! Flt fyrir au. Trlega er etta gert af einhverjum ryggisstum, en jafn flt fyrir a. Allt Bush a kenna !

En talandi um stjrnur, eins og kom fram blogginu gr, hitti g frga leikkonu og lofai a segja ykkur seinna fr v hver a vri. essi leikkona lk aalhlutverki ttunum Sex and the City og heitir Sarah Jessica Parker ! Og viti i a. Herds konan mn, hundskammai mig fyrir a segja ekki strax fr v hver etta var, og hr me kemur a ! Skemmtilegt a hitta hana og spjalla vi hana. Hver stan er fyrir a vi hittumst, kemur sar !

Komum heim fyrramli og leggjum af sta fr Leifsst Keflavk kl. 09:00, ea um a bil og verum komnir til Reykjavkur vi verslun MtorMax um kl. 10:00, ar sem vi endanlega klrum hringinn okkar stra.

Neither Einar nor I have actually realized what weve experienced the last 3 months. I saw the story about us on the news and while I was watching it some thoughts crossed my mind such as Wow, this trip looks amazing, it would be increadable to do that sometime! So it was like I wasnt realizing that it was actually me and Einar who were doing all these things in the story and it was a little strange to watch it from the other side. Weve have truly experienced so many great things during the trip, and I say that even though I probably havent realized everything yet. But its only around 24 hours until we land in Keflavk now and each hour takes longer to pass now. Today was similar to yesterday, just wondering around and looking in some shops and just enjoying being there. Mom and dad have been acting like true tourists and have visited the Empire State building, and to the statue of liberty. They werent able to get up to the statue of liberty because nobody had told them that they had to order with two days notice, probably for security reasons.But we had a good steak last night and celebrated the 48th wedding anniversary of mom and dad, and of course our adventure too. It was really fun and the steak was a real American steak and we drank some wine with it. It was an old and famous steakhouse called Frankie & Johnnie, and there were signed pictures on all the walls of famouse people who have eaten there. Talking about stars, like I said yesterday, I met a famous actress and promised to tell you later who it was. This actress had the leading part in Sex and the City and her name is Sarah Jessica Parker!! So now you know. My wife, Herds, didnt like it so much when I didnt say who it was so Id better do it now. But why I was talking to her Im not going to tell you until later. But finally:

Well be landing in the morning and well leave the ariport in Keflavk at 9 am. We will then be at MotorMax at 10 am where well finally finish the great journey.

Im still here in New York, the city that never sleeps. Its always amazing walking the streets of Manhattan at nights and seeing all the lights, the people and the traffic. But I spent most of the day wandering around and I even did a little shopping. One thing led to another and I ended up having to buy a suitcase because everything else was sent home with the bike! But its good to have something to do over here. I met another famous person here in New York and I talked to her. It was a famous actress but I cant reveal who it is right now, Ill do it later. She is very popular and there were paparazzies, bodycards and people everywhere around her. But even though its fun being here and experiencing everything New York has to offer, frankly Id rather be home right now. Its day number 93 and its hard to have to wait to get home.

But now Im going to talk about the actual homecoming. Einar and I will be landingin Keflavk early in the morning and at 9 am we will head off to Reykjavk and everyone are welcome to join us. We should be at MotorMax around 10 am where we will officially end our trip around the world. MotorMax will be offering coffee and cakes for those who want. I just hope to see as many of you as possible. This will be a lot of fun! - Sverrir
