Adventures in Reykjavik

I just arrived from my solo expedition to Reykjavik, Iceland. I went to visit my good friend Sigrun, do some tourist things and of course explore the graffiti scene out there.Here are some photos of my first day....

The scenery from Keflavik International Airport was breathtaking. Houses rest on land made up of  old volcanic rocks ...looks like a fairytale... IMG_2395

My first night in Reykjavik it rained and there was night. But then I learned

that the cloud only hid the Sun. But in reality there was no sunset during the summers in Iceland.

Inside the guesthouse, vintage Icelandic art and decor...shabby but cute.
