Sadly penis museum and geothermal swimming pools were deferred in favor of more exploring and taking advantage of being around the city during the Airwaves Music Festival:
We glimpsed a possible sighting of Banksy’s work:
…pretended to be elves:
…and checked out Main St and all its public musical performances during Airwaves:
Afterwards we’ve dined at fancy Friorik V, a well known Icelandic gourmet restaurant known for its master chef accompanied by his family in creating the “slow food movement,” presenting dishes that included a divine lobster bisque soup, skyr brulee, filet mignon carpaccio, rhubarb sorbet, and skyr mozarella caprese:
And while hitting up the various nightlife of random bars along the Main St afterwards including Harlem and Dolly, the Northern Lights suddenly appeared right above our heads in the night sky. And we were well within the city center of Reykjavik itself (yes, it’s possible to see it from Reykjavik without leaving the city; you don’t need some special $50 USD tour to go see it).
Unfortunately because we were out and about checking out the nightlife, we didn’t have any good cameras on us to capture it. But our eyes were sufficient enough as we stared dumbly in awe as nature hit us right in the FACE:
- At time of posting in Reykjavik, it was 1 °C - Humidity: 69% | Wind Speed: 3km/hr | Cloud Cover: clouds and visibility OK
