Day 2: November 6, 2015
Once back in good ol’ Reykjavik, we decided to set about exploring the city. Joined by a cute Minesota, fancy camera toting couple, Eric and Alexis, we snapped the obligatory pictures, campy poses optional.
Our walk-about turned up some grafitti finds:
Not to be confused with 7/11:
Outside of Iceland, the next largest population of Icelanders resides in Gimli, Manitoba. I smiled at the site of this building. Later on in the trip I spoke to Erling about it, and before I could get the sentence out, he told me all he knew about Gimli, which was a lot.
We were making our way to City Hall, to check out an arts and crafts fair.
We didn’t purchase anything, but saw some lovely wares. Jewellery made out of seaweed? Nifty. We wandered back towards the hotel, but first, had to buy me a book on Trolls: Enter Laugavegur (the main shopping street).
More impressive wall art:
Tired, and with twisted ankle, we made our way back to the hotel, but not after we stopped at the cute and chic Systur og Makar boutique. But more on that later.
