Favourite Places & More Photos From Our Iceland Trip

If you are a regular to my little part of the web world you might know that I ‘ve been on amazing trip to the land of fire and ice recently. If you aren’t a regular then you better blinkin’ change that because you’re missing out — big style! I’ve got lots to share and tell you ūüôā Anyway, I felt a bit down in the mouth due to menopausal madness over the weekend so there’s nothing better for a lift then to look over holiday snaps is there? I thought I’d share some more of my favourite places and photos of ¬†our recent Iceland trip.

Icelanders love their graffiti and its so artistic I think you’ll agree. You walk around a corner and it’s there — bam!!

Reykjavik’s famous landmark the Hallgr√≠mskirkja church ¬†which the very tip of can be seen from most everywhere in the city.

It turned a bit grey here but as I’ve mentioned before the Icelandic light can change in seconds.

Known locally as the ‘Reykjavik Pond’ – real name¬†Tj√∂rnin – it is a small lake in the centre of the city.

We took a leisurely stroll around here en route to Hallgrímskirkja.

This is the Laundromat Cafe.

It’s a real funky establishment and turns out they are a mini chain first opened in Copenhagen — somewhere else we want to visit. Check out the website here – even that’s quirky!

The food was basic but always spot on. This meal was the equivalent of £75.00. Yes you read that correctly!! Iceland is off the scale budget wise.

We ate Italian on the night of our silver wedding anniversary at Hornid.

We’re a bit predictable like that but as it came highly ¬†recommended by front of house at the hotel we thought it was worth a shot. It ws established in 1979 and is known throughout the city as one of the most well loved and respected eateries.

People eating there seemed to be a mix of tourists and locals which is always a good sign. There was a mini snowstorm going on outside while we tucked into pizza and calzone with more Viking brew!

The Lonely Planet explains it much better than I ever could. If you’re making the trip though this must go on your list. It’s weird. There were lots of tourists just like us at each wonder but hardly any cars and buses on the roads to and from. We joked almost on a daily basis about this … ¬†freaked us out a bit.

Here’s my feeble attempts at a couple of videos but it gives you a taster of the awesome-ness that is Mother Nature.

1.The Great Geyser – 26 seconds — wait for it!!

So, that’s it for my Iceland trip posts. In between home renovations I’m busy thinking up where our next trip will be.
