Reykjavík, Iceland Pictures

Reykjavík, Iceland PicturesMy final stop of my recent vacation was Reykjavík, Iceland. The original plan was to experience the geothermal pools but my wife's OB/GYN advised her against it, so we took a day to walk the city and watch the locals instead.

Reykjavík is charming, and reminded me of a Canadian town with Scandinavian architecture. There wasn't a whole lot to see compared to Italy, but it was a great visit to this volcanic beauty on the southern shore of the Faxaflói Bay.

This is the biggest thing in Reykjavik. It's called the Hallgrimskirkja.

Remarkable country for their plans to be fossil fuel free in the coming future. They also pulled off a remarkable recovery from the world economic meltdown. Google it sometime.

Iceland looks very much like Northern Canada (NWT, Yukon, Nunavut) just with a more ring of fire like volcanic thing going on. There is a road that pretty much circles the entire island.

Ever since I watched a travel show special on Iceland (Lonely Planet, I think) I've wanted to visit this lovely place. Perhaps someday.

From what I hear, Icelandic migration to Canada was mostly in Manitoba & Saskatchewan. Does it look like a European version of say Winnipeg?

I've never been to Winnipeg, but I imagine it's what a maritime town would look like.

My next big trip will be to the Maritimes...
