Iceland Part I // Reykjavik

Reykjavik served as our hub while we were in Iceland. During our first three days, we would venture out from the city in the morning and finish out our nights here with long walks and food coma-inducing meals.   

The city is charming.  Buildings with colored roofs line the narrow streets and eye-catching pieces of art greet you around every corner. Although the biggest city in Iceland, it has a small town feel, making it easily walkable and equally enjoyable. 

It was in this city that we fell in love with the idea of experiencing part of the Iceland culture via tasting menus because we were told that the seafood here is some of the freshest in the world, and because we could never decide what to order. Along the way, we had our first tastes of whale, puffin, and horse.  But it was the hot dogs from Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur that we absolutely plan to recreate - ketchup, sweet mustard, fried onion, raw onion, remoulade, and relish. Yes, please.
