Iceland Photos, Part 1 of 2

Drumroll, please.....

The Iceland pictures are now here! I already gave you a post about my travel tips for Iceland, and now I will give you pictures to convince you to go! (You could probably look up professional photos for even more convincing. Doooo it.)

These are all my photos of my time in Reykjavik.

Ah, that pretty city! It's coastal, it's got pops of color, the people are friendly (including abundant bearded men, holla!), it has a lovely flea market, there's a whole pile of pretty boats, and there's street art on the walls around every corner! MY MECCA.

And can we talk about the park? There's this big park. I forgot to take a picture. But it's beautiful and lovely and the children were running free. I love that everything in Reykjavik was open til 11pm (why not when it's light all night?) and people wandered the streets at those hours casually like it was the middle of the day.

I really felt at home in this city after just a day or two to adjust. After going out to the countryside (those pics are coming in Part 2), I felt like I was coming home when I came back into Reykjavik before we left. It's small, it's easy to navigate the city center on foot, and it's just a fantastic place to explore.

And there's nothing that warms my heart quite like exploring!

Don't mind that the photos are all from my iPhone. Like I said, professional photos are out there for the viewing/taking/enjoying.....but here's my take on this lovely place.






























(I put a dot sticker on that map right over the Bay Area! Woot!)

Love your photo's, what camera did you use? I'm thinking of buying a disposable camera but worried that it might be a pain to carry so many around!
