Hallgrímskirkja, the icon of Reykjavik

Look at images and graphics that portray Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. Many of them, perhaps most, will contain Hallgrímskirkja. The most recent example I’ve found is this icon pack. On another note, it’s interesting how many of the icons depict religious buildings.

Slippurinn

When I was a little boy you would find a number of ships being repaired at Slippurinn in Reykjavík. Today I saw one. What was once a paint store is now a hip and cool hotel where you can sip a coctail, look at the ships and enjoy the view of the city mountain Esja. The times they are a-changin.
