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.
