We recently flew Iceland Air to Sweden. To break up the long flight, we decided to spend a few days in Iceland on our way.
We stayed in the capital, Reykjavik. The church, with its amazing architecture, dominated the downtown area.
The amazing architecture was replicated inside.
The pipe organ was incredible.
We went to the top and took in the view. This part of Iceland was very flat, but it’s not all like that.
Just in front of the church is this statue of the famous viking, Leif Erikson.
We walked up and down the shopping street many times. Our hotel was at one end and the harbor at the other. This made me chuckle.
We enjoyed wonderful pastries every morning…
…and ate at “the most famous restaurant” in Reykjavik.
We were told over and over again that the most popular restaurant in town was this hot dog stand. The menu simple–hot dogs and pop!
In the Icelandic Air flight magazine I read about a fun comedy show called How To Become Icelandic in Sixty inutes, so we decided to go.
It was very good, but best of all was that it was in Harpa, the wonderful new performing arts center.
The walls are all honeycombed glass.
We wandered all around…
…and marveled at the structure.
We really enjoyed our time in Reykjavik!
