On our last day we had to check out of our Apartment at 12.
We then took the bus to the bus station and wanted to leave our luggage there but all lockers were full.
That was bad because it was raining and we had to took the luggage to the city with us.
We had to be at the Airport at 8 PM so we had couple of hours to spend in the city.
We went to the tourist office at Adalstraeti 2. We could leave our luggage there .
It was little cold so we decided to go for a hot chocolate at Cafe Babalu.
Babalu is at the address Skólavörðustígur 22a. It is a very nice and interesting Cafe. For all Star Wars fans – they have Star Wars bathroom 😉
When we warmed our self a little we went to the Hallgrimskirkja.
We bought the tickets and went to the Tower. The view from the tower is very nice.
After that we just walked around the center, feeling a little sad we have to go home already.
Finally a short vacation for me. Only 5 days but fantastic destination.
As I always say : Better to travel a bit but not to travel at all.
I went to Iceland!
It was necessary to save a lot for this trip but it was worth it.
The cheapest ticket we found was from Zagreb to Vienna to Oslo to Reykjavik.
Lot of stops, but it was the cheapest and the longest wait we had was in Oslo – 8 hours.
In Wien we had only 40 minutes layover.
When we came to Oslo airport we went to find a place to sit down and maybe rest a little until our flight, which was in the morning.
We bought a Beer and we sat down.
In front of us was a big „penis statue“ which was very interesting, oddly and funny, because lot of people came to take a picture with the statue in various poses. 🙂
After a while two guys came to sit beside us and we heard a familiar language so we ended up talking until morning.
The guys were very nice and interesting so the time passed very fast.
If they are reading this I’m sending them big regards – Bojan & Ivan :), maybe we’ll meet again some day.
We came to Reykjavik around 09:00 AM.
We took a Flybus to the main bus station and from there we went with Straeto bus to our rented apartment which was in Búðagerði.
We left our stuff and went to Skarfabakki pier.
We bought a ticket to the boat and went to Viðey Island.
Viðey is the largest island of the Kollafjörður Bay in Iceland, near the Reykjavík.
It is the location of the Imagine Peace Tower, which is a “Tower of Light” built by Yoko Ono, in memory of John Lennon.
The Church in Viðey is one of the oldest in the country.
There are also many birds there.
Island can be explored both on foot and by bike.
It’s great for a short visit.
After visiting the Island we took a Sculpture and Shore walk from the pier to the Harpa.
That was our first day in Iceland.
