Postcards from Reykjavik, Iceland

Reykjavik is Iceland's capital and largest city, and one of the smallest capital cities in the world.

Usually, I am not a big fan of spending time in a countries cities, especially not those where countless adventure activities beckon in surreal and untouched landscapes. Reykjavik city however, was a little bit different, and comes in second to New York on my list of favourite cities in the world. It is probably the peaceful stress free city life of the Icelandics that first drew me in, coupled with its myriad of marvels for just about everyone who visits. It is a city rich in historical sites, humorous signposts that adorn shopkeepers windows, a city where artists from all art forms flock together, and a city that is home to an abundance of untouched natural landscapes.

I have put together this photoblog of some of the things myself and Jess saw on our day on foot in Reykjavik. I never imagined that graffiti could bring a city so alive, and be done so elegantly.

Have you visited a place here that I have forgotten about?
