It's easy to find Icelandic food with a lot of fish or
anything else that may you might require. Now, if you really want to
shop for something authentic from Iceland, you should look for handmade sweaters,
caps, scarves and mittens. But, they don't come cheap. If you really
want one of those items, pass over your credit card and don't look at
the price. I couldn't do that.
the main landmarks in Reykjavik is the Hallgrimskirkja, a Lutheran
church. As you stroll from the church to the sea, you'll discover the Sun Voyager. A competition
to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Reykjavik resulted in this beautiful outdoor sculpture by Jón Gunnar Árnason.
Of course, if you speak Icelandic, you call the piece Sólfar. Many
people, myself included, look at the piece and think it represents
a Viking ship. Not so. The artist envisioned it as a dreamboat to
the sun that symbolized both light and hope.
