Westman island Heimaey and puffins!

This island is very close to Hella and the place where I live now. I ´ve never been there before and yesterday was just the perfect sunny autumn day to see the next piece of Iceland. I left car in the car park, took ferry and came to the only town there, Vestmannaeyjar. Then I was walking, hitchhiking to the most southern spot of the island (it is not so far but I wanted to safe time), and hiking to the volcano Eldfell. This volcano erupted in 1973 which was disaster for the town. You can find here also a museum of the volcano.
