Reykjavik


Reykjavik is considered to be a good place for nightlife.  A visit to old town shows why, lots of bars, restaurants, and entertainment venues.

On our first evening we took a “Haunted City” walking tour.  Although a bit short on ghosts, we did hear some great folklore and visited many of the city’s historical sites, including the old cemetery.  After all, 90% of Icelanders have some belief in elves or trolls….

The next day we walked through town, did some window shopping and visited local landmarks.  This also included a stroll to the Hallgrimskirkje church, certainly unique.  Some hate it, some love it, but it certainly is visible.
