City Stroll in Reykjavík
Before the stormy, snowy weather came over here a few days ago, Óskar and I spent a nice afternoon in central Reykjavík, strolling around and doing nothing but savouring the moment. There are so many beautiful and colourful buildings that it’s always a pleasure of its own to have a look around in the course of the seasons. All the small cafés and galleries might be a bit touristy at times, but it’s definitely worse in the summer than now, in wintertime.
I have to admit that I’m a great admirer of beautiful and picturesque cityscapes. Although, unfortunately, there’s this general tendency to mutilate the city’s visage by putting up tall skyscrapers next to one another, most parts of the very city centre have still remained unaffected. My favourite building, of course, is Hallgrímskirkja, the great whitish-grey church at the top of the hill (which you can see in the last picture of this post). I really love it’s monochrome style and it’s minimalistic, yet somewhat sublime architecture.
Later today, Óskar and I are finally going to take some new outfit pictures – I’m quite excited and really looking forward to it. As the weather is kind of unstable at the moment, we have a special indoor location in mind which might have become as much of a landmark in Reykjavík as Hallgrímskirkja lately. Could you guess where we’re heading to?
