Reykjavik once more

And one more from Iceland – a garden decoration we came across in Reykjavik.

It sums up Reykjavik for me – fun and unconventional, and determined to make it through the cold!



Before the rain

This photograph was taken yesterday after a thunderstorm passed over our area – just as the rain was coming in from behind the trees.

There was some damage from the storm – roofs destroyed, trees broken and branches flying, but nobody was hurt here.

And then – out came the sunlight!

Harpa at Reykjavik

One of my favorite memories of Reykjavik is the opening of the Harpa.
We visited it several times and loved the glass front and the colors – what a wonderful idea.

In general, we didn’t expect Reykjavik to be so colorful – but we loved it!


Iceland and Snæfellsjökull

After driving over the gravel road to Snæfellsjökull, we came to this guest house – a welcome sight in this rainy and cold day!

A memorative sign was there for Jules Verne – as this is the mountain where “The journey to the middle of the earth” starts.


Outdoors for a change

Hiking in Styria by SpatzMe

We had a nice hiking trip in Styria on the weekend, and that was the view we had.
Isn’t it almost like a postcard?
Enough fresh air to prepare for a week in the office 🙂
