Here’s just a tiny fraction of the pictures I want to show you (because otherwise, I’ll spend the whole night blogging):
A view of downtown Reykjavík from the tower of Hallgrímskirkja, Iceland’s tallest building.
With houses that look like these…
and these… I don’t understand why so many of the houses in my country are so colorless!
Here are a few scenes of things I liked around town…
…places that are lived in.
A window at street level.
If you’ve been around my blog for a while, you know how much I love buildings that show signs of past lives…
Hallgrímskirkja is visible from lots of spots all over town.
This is why I didn’t go into business.
In the Reykjavík Kirkjugarður (graveyard), I made a friend. By the time we parted, I was covered with cat fur. That’s okay – maybe it provided an extra layer of warmth. (By New England standards, it’s proper winter here!)
I saw these BONKERS rings in a shop window.
Can you imagine wearing this on your finger?
And thus, my dear readers, my location is revealed: I’m in Iceland. I’m writing, sightseeing, exploring… and eventually, weather permitting, driving counterclockwise along the coast to Akureyri. I hope I’ll have time to share pictures all along the way!
