    Reykjavik Day 2 pm

    May 22, 2019 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    After brunch we went on a long walk exploring rather than rest from our no sleep night. We visited the beautiful National Church of Iceland designed by architect Samuelson. We saw the statue of Lief Eriksen the Icelandic discoverer who found North America before Christopher Columbus. We walked through lots of old streets and found a restaurant with authentic Icelandic food and then a decadent bakery. We got back to the hotel ready to drop. Our rooms were ready so we both had a nap.
    We woke up refreshed and took the hotel shuttle to the harbourfront for supper. We enjoyed a lovely happy hour watching the ships. Lucie and Jean opened the card and gift of a scarf I had made for them and celebrated the start of another travel adventure. The oldest fish and chip restaurant in Reykjavik was recommended to us for a delicious casual meal and Paul found Reykjavik's most famous ice cream shop across the road to finish off our first full day.
    A taxi had our name on it and we took a ride back to hotel about 10pm still full daylight.
