We completely fell in love with the city and quickly shifted into its rhythm.
Here are a few of our favorite things...
Color everywhere. A smart way to brighten up dark winter days.
Street art all over the place. Everywhere you look, there's amazing art of the street, from murals to mosiacs to mirrored waterfalls.
Coffee! Reykjavik is a coffee city and none is better than Kaffismiðja Íslands. It's dreamy.
Quiet. For a city, Reykjavik is incredibly peaceful, except of course, at 3 am on a Saturday night on Laugevegur.
A few other favorites that I didn't take pictures of:
The Pools. An Icelandic tradition and favorite social activity, Reykjavik is home to several public pools. They feature hot pots and bigger pools heated at or around 38 degrees celsius. Locals go to the pools to hang out with family and friends, relax a bit or even go on dates (it's a common 2nd date). If you go to Iceland, you have to check out a few local pools!
Saegreifinn. Owned to a retired sea captain who lives upstairs, Saegreifinn serves delicious fish kebobs fresh from the ocean and lobster soup. It is delicious.
Harlem Bar. A super-fun bar/club with good djs. On our last night in town, a few of the guys from Sigur Ros were djing. It was awesome.
