This hotel is conveniently located and adequately comfortable. That's pretty much all we needed in Reykjavik. Don't expect any "frills", but the premises are quite pleasant (lots of Icelandic art in the hotel - apparently the original owner was a collector). It has a restaurant and bar on premises. We have not tried the restaurant, but I had the worst red wine in my life at their bar. I don't remember if it was Cabernet or Shiraz, but it should have been called "vinegar". And I should have sent it back, but it was a family gathering and I did not want to spoil the mood. I don't know if it was an isolated occasion or was representative of the bar selection - ever since I kept my drinking business elsewhere.
Breakfast was average. Front desk staff was pleasant and helpful.

Reykjavik - despite being the largest city in Iceland - is actually rather small...it's pleasant and walkable...and I would call it charming except - I've noticed - I am not easily charmed by the northern cities...I am usually partial to sensuous, sultry, somewhat haphazard southern cities - give me Seville any …
For our second day in Iceland, we decided to drive along the southern part of the country. The first stop we made was a waterfall that we visited based on the recommendation of a waitress at last night's dinner. It's called Seljalandsfoss and it's the only waterfall in Iceland that you can walk behind. It was really great. The only thing that wasn't so great was the ...
... breakfast which hit the spot as I desperately needed coffee and some sustenance if sleep wasn't in the cards.
As it was just after 9am we decided to give the city more time to wake up and headed first to Hallgrimskirkja - the city's iconic Lutheran church, that took over 40 years to build and with it's minimalist look, not much to show for it. However an elevator trip up the clock/bell tower makes one forget you are in a church at ...
... back to the same place again and again when there are so many other beautiful places in the world. But I was proved wrong, you can never be satisfied by visiting this place once. A country with such immense natural beauty can be visited many times and the first visit is just the prologue of the whole story to be told ahead! Hence I will repeat the cliche statement once again ” you can never visit Iceland just once”.
... feel fairly confident but I haven’t ridden enough to consider it anywhere near experienced. Last time I rode was a few years ago on a tour through a winery we did in California.
Introductions aside, our first order of business is a trip to the swimming pools after a small breakfast at a coffee shop. Other than the orange juice, I have no idea what I have consumed in the funny looking sandwich. Originally this was going to be a trip to the ...
