ReykjavikThe northernmost capital city in the world is always vibrant thanks to the burst of colors of its cityscape. The houses are clad in corrugated iron (durable & effective insulation), but painted in bright sunny colors...like a land of giant doll houses. From the bell tower, the houses look like Lego or Monopoly pieces.
Reykjavik - shopping on LaugavegurWhile it is the capital, Reykjavik seems more like a village. It is very cosmopolitan, very sassy, very artsy, and a city for foodies! By far Laugavegur (Wash Road) offers the widest selection of it all.
Reykjavik - pubStopping for soup and a mug of Viking ale. On the menu is Reindeer Stew or Lamb Soup...in a bread bowl of course!
