Appropriately named Iceland

WOW Air red-eye from Baltimore to Reykjavik screams party right?

The airport to town center is a 50 minute drive through endless lava fields hugging a frigid coastline.

Layering up was no match for the cold – wind gusts threw us around like drunken sailors. Thank goodness we only had a quick 25 hour stay. 

First on the list was the magnificent Harpa Concert Hall – glass, mirrors and more glass.

The town is spotless with yummy dining choices – plenty of cafes to thaw out – multitude of wool sweater stores – corrugated steel sided minimalistic architecture – cool street art

 

and a cut to the chase newspaper..

We dipped our toes in the Icelandic culture and plan to return to see the Northern Lights.

About Paige Shaw

Bitten by the wanderlust bug years ago - I have become an eyewitness to and documenter of the world’s divergent cultures (108 countries and counting). Photographing vistas that take my breath away and connecting with everyday people. Watching my photography transform over the years has inspired me to do more, take chances and seek out the unknown. I’m also a wife, mother, yogi, pilgrim, burner, skier, scuba diver and gypsy. “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ― Pablo Picasso
