I spent (almost) a week in Iceland this September. It's dope. Everyone should go!
  1. Blue Lagoon
    F87ebdde 9bfe 4bc3 8a04 0ee71af39fea
    Everyone is right when they say you should go right from the airport. Smooths the transition nicely and you get to be lazy in a robe without feeling guilty you're wasting your vacation. The lamb at LAVA is amazing and it was better because I ate it in the robe.
  2. Reykjavik Roasters
    8fc4a67c 42a2 4f8c b1f6 4c250940b62d
    I just loved reading on their website that the barista community in Reykjavik came together to make great coffee here. That community consisted of 7 people.
  3. Hallgrímskirkja
    51795589 6312 4b4e a8c4 ad78874704bd
    Cool shaped church and best view of Reykjavik from the top.
  4. Rainbow Road
    F367443e 492d 4a99 8994 293c2b7f5232
    Can't remember the name, but Reykjavik is pretty small so you'll find it. Felt like I was in a quaint real-life Candyland village.

    All caps because I consider myself a hot dog connoisseur and I was constantly mispronouncing the name. Lamb dogs with onions, ketchup, dijon, fried onions, and remoulade. Bill Clinton ate an HD here once. Open late night 😉
  6. Lebowski Bar
    1200c079 9d20 4e58 a926 df743c2a569e
    A random homage to the Dude a million miles away. They have 40 different White Russians on the menu. This is my carefully staged IG shot
  7. Prikid
    Crowded and fun, lots of Scandinavian-looking kids grinding to old school hip hop. Nice blonde bartenders who will give you free shots of traditional Icelandic liquor or are possibly fucking with you. Basketball hoop outside in the back #ballislife
  8. Golden Circle
    65179126 3e7e 4618 92c1 97ce6c52d7fb
    Too scared to rent a car, so did a bus tour and it was 👌🏼, besides an unscheduled stop at the Icelandic Power Plant that we were convinced was some kind of mandate/our tour guide got kickbacks. Fun fact: Beiber was here (Gullfoss) just THREE DAYS later to film "I'll Show You" vid http://vevo.ly/kaIE8d
  9. Additional note about bus tours
    We did Grey Line (booked through Extreme Iceland) and it DOES NOT depart from the downtown station. It's several kms outside of town and the pickup schedule is confusing or it was for us who considered the 9-930 window to be more of a suggestion. Luckily Grey Line reps were super accommodating of our American idiocy
  10. Gullfoss
    Df9cd06e 08c3 4f44 9044 02d7e38d0eb4
    Here's a selfie to convey the joy. Just the roar of the water and how close you are to the rush
  11. Geysir
    57fdd009 a877 4340 80ba 7eaf9eb612d9
    Literally the OG geyser, how cool is that? Hard to get a photo since it doesn't happen at regular intervals (unlike Old Faithful) but once you're over taking a video, it's exciting to wait for the eruption
  12. Skalholt Church
    47fdce0d d20e 453a 8a8c 33f1cec42e9e
    Allegedly the seat of Icelandic bishops? Idk was pretty and we took cool pics
  13. Mar
    1bc52f57 ad70 4342 b3d7 b2386658b03f
    Delicious little restaurant by the harbor. Amazing fried fish. This is whatever I got which was tasty too but I ate off Ans' fried fish plate
  14. Grillmarket (Grillmarkadurrin)
    683b517d 407d 4330 a32d 1fdaa90fa3dc
    BEST FOOD EVER. I have a salmon thing and this is the best I've ever had. The sides, the sauces, the BREAD and butter (which is a big deal in Iceland) served here with lava salt. 💯💯💯
  15. More to come!
