I tried to do a blog post while on our holiday in Iceland last week but my iPad wouldn't cooperate. So now I'm home and am overwhelmed by all the photos I have to organize. I'm going to start by posting some pics of our time in Reykjavík both at the beginning and end of our tour.
This Lutheran Church is the tallest landmark in Reykjavík. It is the Hallsgrímskirkja and the bell tower can be seen from almost everywhere in the city (pop. 115,600).
in honour of the 1930 Alþingi Millennial Festival, commemorating the 1,000th anniversary of the establishment of Iceland's parliament at Þingvellir in 930 AD.
Höfði House, which was the site of the 1986 summit meeting between Reagan and Gorbachev, which effectively ended the Cold War.
The streets were very clean and relatively uncongested. This was the end of the peak tourist season.
The ornamental kale and some type of herb made for a striking display.
In my next post, I'll highlight the handknits of Iceland.
