Stranger in a Strange (Ice)land

The capital of Iceland, Reykjavik, is a small city that certainly doesn’t lack for things to do such as museums, bars, restaurants etcetera but it doesn’t have much going for it in terms of architectural gems or charming little areas tucked away in unlikely places.  It tends to be a functional rather than decorative city.

The main street in the centre of town though, Laugavegur, has more than its fair share of pubs, restaurants and touristy shops which inevitably means that we get to see the slightly weirder side of things in the city…

You never know what you’ll find in the local pet shop.
Colourful fire hydrants are to be found all over the city.
Beady-eyed beasties!
A great idea for the winter. Beer Mittens!
