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

Hi! I'm Paige - a freelance travel photographer. Let's go on a photo journey across the globe. The aim of my work it to show you the many layers and exquisite textures of a locality; its character, culture, people and beauty. Bitten by the wanderlust bug years ago my husband Bill and I set out to see the world. 2013 gave birth to a travel blog (www.billandpaige.com) chronicling our journeys so that curious family and friends could follow in real time. From that beginning so too a photographer was born. Honing my skills over the years I am now excited to narrate our discoveries with imagery! As you glimpse my art - join as we explore together. Be sure to throw your fashion ego out the door cuz there's no room in the carry-on luggage. Sunrise shots start at 5am. Hiking to the top for a different perspective will definitely get your blood pumping and you might even need to role up your pant legs to capture those closeups on the water…. Most of all - get ready to SMILE - it's the universal language. I’m also a wife, mother, yogi, pilgrim, burner, golfer, skier, scuba diver and expert wanderluster. “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ― Pablo Picasso
