    Solfar

    February 10 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ -3 °C

    Non è zolfo in friulano, è la “Nave del Sole”, il monumento forse oggi più famoso di Reykjavík.
    Qualche foto lì al tramonto, sgomitando con i selfisti cinesi, poi un giro senza fotocamere per le ghiacciatissime strade della capitale.
    Il nostro bellissimo viaggio si chiude in Islanda con cenetta a base di merluzzo e “redfish” fritti. Domani si rientra via Londra.
    Grazie a tutti per averci seguiti 👍

    Reykjavik

    February 16 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ -1 °C

    Heute morgen hieß es mal nicht wie gewohnt auf in die Trekking Klamotten sondern Jeans an, denn für uns ging es für eine Nacht nach Reykjavík.
    Dort angekommen sind wir etwas durch die Straßen der Hauptstadt gebummelt, haben auch das ein oder andere gekauft, und sind dann in die wohl bekannteste Kirche der Stadt. Die Hallgrimskirche. Vom Kirchturm aus hat man eine fantastische Sicht über die ganze Stadt.
    Danach ging es für uns noch etwas an den Hafen.
    Am Abend haben wir uns zwei Tickets für die Blue Lagoon gekauft. Das ist das bekannteste Freibad mit Thermalwasser auf Island und eine Touristen Attraktion. Trotz minus Grade ist das Wasser auch im Winter immer um die 37-42 Grad warm.

    Ps: Das letzte Bild ist außerhalb der Lagune, das Wasser sieht jedoch gleich aus, bis auf das der Dampf fehlt.

    Dopo la gustosa zuppa d’astice, per i pinguini è giunto il momento di un pisolo.

    Land of fire and ice and of course Björk

    Yesterday in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 1 °C

    With Finnish forests still fresh in our memories, a 3 1/2 hour flight across the Baltic and Norwegian Seas has found us in Reykjavík, Iceland. A quick evening stroll has revealed what looks to be a quirky city. Something like an outback arctic station that grew into something bigger but has still managed to retain some of its small town nature. It’s early days for us and tomorrow will revel more.Read more

    Blue Lagoon

    November 24, 2017 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 32 °F

    Had a late breakfast and a lazy morning looking around the shops before setting off to the Blue Lagoon at one o'clock.

    This is a geothermal pool that is kept at a steady 37 degrees by adding sea water to the already hot water from the ground.

    The salt in the sea water when added to the naturally found minerals from beneath the ground are meant to good for your skin.

    However the walk from the complex to the pool when it's minus ten degrees (when taking into account the wind chill factor), especially when you are already wet having had to shower once you have changed, is certainly an experience!

    I also never thought I would ever find myself queuing up to apply a mud pack to my face!

    They also have a swim up bar!

    But once you are in.... You suddenly remember that you have to get out again!!!

    All in all an experience that we will never forget and that we are very glad that we did.

    Sorry no pictures...... The one that is included was taken this morning when out and about (at 11 o'clock!).

    Apparently come the middle of December, they only have two hours of daylight from 11:00 to 13;00!

    Off to try and see the Northern Lights again tonight....xx

    Reykjavik

    December 13, 2018 in Iceland ⋅ 🌧 7 °C

    Well I’ve spent the past four days in the most amazing country. Iceland is the most raw and natural place on this earth. The people are extremely friendly and welcoming. The capital city, Reykjavik, which has been home, is a city with a village feel to it. There are approximately 300,000 people that call Iceland home but it feels like a whole lot less. After the hassle and bussle of New York, Reykjavik is a slow moving breath of fresh air. The city has tiny cobblestone roads and brightly coloured houses that are generally two story with one house upstairs and another separate house downstairs. The sights and tourist attractions are numerous, I managed to fit in two tours, Northern Lights, Golden Circle and a very special day at the Blue Lagoon. This is one place I would definitely want to revisit.Read more

    Reykjavik

    December 14, 2018 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    Final day in Iceland today. It was nice to have a sleep in after two massive days touring with very early mornings and very late nights. This place is truly amazing, the people are extremely friendly and hospitable, their second language is English so communication is very easy. The scenery is some of the most spectacular I have ever seen and in my four days here I have only scratched the surface. It is quite expensive to eat here but I was aware of it beforehand and just made sensible choices. Thank you Iceland for a wonderful experience, I would love to return one day.Read more

    Nora Magasin

    November 23, 2017 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 30 °F

    So the Northern Lights tour has been cancelled for tonight..... Unsurprisingly due to the horrendous weather out of town.

    So not to look a gift horse in the mouth, we took advantage of the happy hour in the hotel bar..... Quick change and out to visit Nora's which we found in the guide book.

    They do a beer tasting tray!!!!!!🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺..... And a great burger.... What is not too like.....????

    First views of Helsinki...

    November 22, 2017 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 32 °F

    Deposited our bags in the hotel.... Then went out to explore the city.

    Very cold.... Flutters of snow.....

    Getting our bearings we strolled around both the old and new towns

    Some crazy people were testing the ice across the lake....

    Came across the Hallgrimskirkja Church.... Took in the stunning panoramic views of the city and across the bay from the top of the tower.

    We are then heading out at nine o'clock in search of the illusive northern lights.

    Learning Islandic & dining

    June 6, 2017 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    The most important sentence is "allt i lagi", translates to ok, awesome or are you okay if you add a "?". More over we tried lopster soup and some nice fish sticks from the grill complimentary to my nice colleagues from oose! For the German followers: berliner Ehepaar bei uns am Tisch: "hmm, lobstersoup, ich dachte die hätten hier Hummersuppe, aber dann probieren wir eben die aus"Read more
