Reykjavik is a city I have always wanted to visit, I have heard about its great food scene, funky art shops and of course Iceland's natural beauty.
This is a traditional Icelandic doughnut dipped in cardamom syrup so good.
The first day we ate at a restaurant called Geyser bistro
I had a wonderful seafood soup loaded with shrimp, lobster and shrimp.
This is a rice pudding they give to kids
Here's a cute little coffee house and I must say they love coffee and cake :-)
Super cute little shop, the city has lots of small art and nick nack shops :-)
This is a skyr chocolate cake.
Iceland is famous for skyr yogurt similar to Greek yogurt high in protein and they also sell lovely yoghurt drinks.
This was a Viking sculpture next to the bay with the moon in the distance.
Here's an example of the amazing bakeries here
This was a wonderful salad bar at a local restaurant serving delicious organic world inspired food. As a dietitian I loved this and they grow a lot of vegetables using geothermal heat in greenhouses.
Today's weather was very rainy and gloomy Iceland's weather is unpredictable and reminds me of Scotland where I grew up.
But we hired a car and still had fun getting into the beautiful countryside despite the rain.
Tomorrow we are driving to the country and staying on a horse farm and celebrating our darling boys first birthday :-)
His big sister told him he will be one and she will hug him
Hope your having a wonderful week
Love from Iceland
