A few days in Reykjavik

ICELAND | Wed, 10 Feb 2016 | By tiltingwindmills | Views [604]

Day 1: Like most flights ours arrived early in the morning into Keflavik airport, where we boarded the Flybus to downtown. The ride took only 45min to central Reykjavik, but another 45mins to drop us off at our apartment. Since we were a group of three ... Read more >

The city that stole my heart

ICELAND | Fri, 16 Oct 2015 | By welcometomyworld | Views [687]

Reykjavik is the capital and largest city of Iceland. I spent five nights in Reykjavik and fell in love. The city was buzzing with vibrant night life with cafe book shops, bars and restaurants. There is amazing street art and colourful houses everywhere ... Read more >

Doing the Thermal Pool Shuffle

ICELAND | Fri, 20 Feb 2015 | By the_life_of_lady_laura | Views [441]

I think I may have had an idealistic view of what Iceland would be like. Sure I know it is called the land of 'ice and fire' for a reason, but I'd been diligently checking the weather forecasts for the week or so before we left and the forecast was miserable ... Read more >

Blue Lagoon and Runtur

ICELAND | Sat, 23 Aug 2014 | By schmodude | Views [465]

The Blue Lagoon was nice. So was the Runtur (pub crawl from midnight until 4 am). Not too many pictures from the whole day. I’m tired and it is time for me to get going to the airport. Off to London today! Edit: Bardarbunga just started to erupt, ... Read more >

Golden Circle

ICELAND | Fri, 22 Aug 2014 | By schmodude | Views [306]

  I went on the famous Golden Circle tour. It was great fun. About 40 km outside the city, our minibus had one of its rear tires blowout. Luckily, we were driving past a geothermal power station, or there would have been nowhere to pull off the ... Read more >

The City Center

ICELAND | Thu, 21 Aug 2014 | By schmodude | Views [324]

Wednesday morning was spent walking around town with my new friends Eric and Michael. Our first stop was the funky looking Hallgrímskirkja church we saw from the hostel balcony. An elevator goes up to the top of the bell tower and provides a complete ... Read more >

ICELAND | Wed, 20 Aug 2014 | By schmodude | Views [380]

Today started with some coffee and a last minute trip to the bank to deposit a check from this Summer. Afterwards, my dad took me off to the airport where I was quite happy to see my TSA precheck had gone through on my reservation. Unfortunately, my ... Read more >

Blue Lagoon: the Geothermal Tourist Trap

ICELAND | Fri, 18 Apr 2014 | By kurenai | Views [2895]

Blue Lagoon is justly famous in Iceland. It is also probably the most touristy place you will visit on your journey. Not to say it is a bad thing but just be ready for waves of people coming in on large tour buses going either to or from the airport.... Read more >

know yourself. trust yourself. and hold on.

UNITED KINGDOM | Fri, 30 Jul 2010 | By ejpredny | Views [731]

The doomsday clock maliciously turned hours into seconds as my final days in Iceland wound to an end. I scampered about, wishing desperately that I could gather up the entire country into one big bear hug and refuse to let go! I had a big plan ... Read more >

ICELAND | Sun, 11 Jul 2010 | By ejpredny | Views [926]

He looked at me squarely in the eyes, sizing up the spirit inside and making up his mind. I tripped over his name- Floki, chatting inanely about how I trust him completely and we are meant for each other while nervously fussing about checking all ... Read more >

Reykjavik, Iceland - Day 1

ICELAND | Wed, 2 Sep 2009 | By kreydatus | Views [581] | Comments [1]

My flight from Boston to Reykjavik was a smooth and happy one.  I didn't get much sleep on the flight but I did doze off for a hot second I believe. It was only 5 hours long and before I knew it I was already at Keflavik Airport ! The airport itself ... Read more >

glaciers, geysirs, gullfoss - the last leg

ICELAND | Wed, 18 Jun 2008 | By mredovan | Views [1803]

I believe I left off in Akureyri, the "cosmopolitan capital of the North." It certainly was the largest town we'd seen since leaving Reykjavik, and we'd wanted to spend some quality time there, but unfortunately our time constraints required ... Read more >

a pre-mature verdict can't be helped

ICELAND | Wed, 14 May 2008 | By mredovan | Views [1121] | Comments [4]

Our First Morning in Reykjavik

ICELAND | Wed, 30 Apr 2008 | By sxoidmal | Views [482]

I wrote in "Wednesday, technically" because we've lost some time, flying westward. After a very long flight we touched down in Keflavik Int'l Airport , a daub of architecture in the middle of a broad field of volcanic rock and tough, stubborn ... Read more >
