A wander around quirky Reykjavik

Reykjavik is home to 3/4 of Iceland’s population – yet it is still a small town-like city. With a friendly and very relaxed atmosphere it was easy to wander the streets, and every shop or cafe I walked into was warm and welcoming.

I never thought I’d end up in a Penis Museum… to tell the truth, I didn’t know that a museum of penises even existed… but who was I kidding…. A Penis Museum was just what this town needed. With quirks like this, I saw Iceland’s odd sense of humour shining through, and I liked what I saw! ha ha ha.

Jumping for joy at Piedras Rojas and some really blue really cool lagunas

It was another exciting day with my new friends Ever Further, after a late night of star gazing in the desert, counting the stars in the Milky Way until late with the company of a random dog, we got up early for a 7am pick up from Flamingo Tour operators – we were going to see the famous Red Rocks on the side of an emerald green salty lake…. among other exciting places!  Continue reading “Jumping for joy at Piedras Rojas and some really blue really cool lagunas”
