Iceland Miscellanies

This is my last post from our trip to Iceland in April. This is a little restaurant in Reykjavik right on the harbor.

Everyone sits at long skinny tables. The food was incredible! Especially the lobster stew. This is kind of a fast food sort of place. There are NO McDonalds or Starbucks in Iceland!

A lighthouse in Reykjavik.

An abandoned house on the hike to a waterfall. Of course, we went in!

This was odd and a bit creepy!

The water Iceland is the best in all the world!

This soda confused me until I realized it was grapefruit.

A great bakery….

…with a wide variety of options!

There are very few billboards in Iceland making the scenic drives even better. We did see this kitcshy couple at one intersection.

You should eat breakfast at a magnificent waterfall at least once in your life!

Loved seeing these old Jeeps!

The great thing about camping is that you bring your kitchen with you. We made soup in a parking lot for lunch one day.

More confusing soda! It was delish!


Icelanders LOVE their ice cream. And if you taste it, you will understand. So good!

Bonus is a chain of grocery stores. I love visiting grocery stores in other countries!

The famous red chair is just off the highway on the east side of the country.

Everyone has to stop and take a photo!

These little vanilla sandwich cookies were amazing! Good thing we don’t have them here!

Another must have snack. Yummmmmm….

I hope you have enjoyed these posts. It has been fun for me to look back. If you are looking for adventure, I highly recommend visiting Iceland.

Have a great day!

    I have really enjoyed all your Iceland posts. It is great to experience different places and cultures. Imagine no MacDonalds or Starbucks! The bakery and the seafood restaurants looked like very good alternatives!
    As for the signs in the restrooms… We were amazed to see similar signs in our sons University accommodation in the UK! Obviously some international students have to make a few fundamental cultural shifts when they move from the East to the West!
