Our time was limited to about a week in Iceland, so we only had time for a couple of days in the capital city of . but they were enjoyable none the less. We spent most of our time there dodging rain-drops, just a drizzle but it was raining. With the rain opportunities for good photos limited. I focused mainly on windows.
Everyone we met was friendly and most spoke English like a first language. This lead to a confusing incident on our last morning. Donna and I decided to walk to a bakery for some pastries to bring back to the Hótel Frón for breakfast. We headed for Bakarí Sandholt On the way a group of young teen-age girls charged to us, talking Icelandic, though I didn’t recognize it. one of them switched to English asking if we spoke English. I was about to answer ‘Yes, but we were tourists and could not give them directions’ What they wanted was an autograph and pictures of English, they were on a scavenger hunt for a school project. When we spotted another group rounding a corner we quickly ducked into the shop. We purchased a couple of raisin-cinnamon rolls and returned to the hotel to eat with the rest of our group.
Here are just a few photos from around town, a teaser so to speak. Over the next few posts I’ll have more from Reykjavík as well as lots more from my travels.
