... the untrained passenger's eye. We drove down to the port area which has tons of whale and puffin watching boat tours for sale as well as restaurants, shops and pedestrians.

The hotel is 2 kms away from the city centre and harbour and is located right beside the domestic airport. It looks like ...

... plates. We hiked up to the top of the North American plate, where we were picked up and brought back to Reykjavik. After briefly stopping by Bonus and the hostel, we went to Bæjarins beztu pylsur, which is said to have the best hot dogs in the world. They were very good and had mysterious toppings.
