Around Reykjavik, Capital City, Iceland

Reykjavik, on the coast of Iceland, is the country’s capital and largest city. It’s home to the National and Saga museums, tracing Iceland’s Viking history. The striking concrete Hallgrimskirkja church and rotating Perlan glass dome offer sweeping views of the sea and nearby hills.  The Reykjavík capital city is currently home to 211.282 people, that’s two-thirds of the entire Icelandic population.  Yet, it is considered as one of the smallest capital cities in the world, and still big enough to fit in six super-sized districts

Exploring the city on foot is a delightful experience with much to see, including everything from old style wood-framed houses, clad in colorful corrugated-iron, mixed with a creative collection of postmodern architecture. The lively atmosphere generated by the activity in Reykjavík’s old Harbour area is a new major attraction and the area makes for a pleasant stroll, as do any of the city’s many historic trails. Here are few sights around Reykjavik, captured during an evening stroll.

One of the advantages of doing a photo tour with a coach, they will be constantly looking for unconventional places to spot to do a photoshoot.  On the day 1, we were heading out of our base city Reykjavik, our coach spotted a puddle water on the road (possibly caused by rain or melted snow) and stopped our car to do reflection photography. Here is the outcome.

One of the most popular questions asked to me was, “How was the food?”  “Did you struggle to vegetarian food”.   Below are few pics clicked during my brunch/lunch/dinner throughout the week in Iceland.    No, I did not find Masala Dosa and Biryani in Iceland, but I did not starve either.  I had plenty of vegetarian choices to enjoy and indulge

I publish a blog post almost every weekend. Do leave a note or hit like or hit follow, so I know you have stopped by
