Harpa, Reykjavik Concert Hall and Conference CentreProcessed with VSCO with lv03 preset I wish I was better at blogging about my travels, but it isn't always on the top of my priority list. 

In March of this year I was in Reykjavik - capitol of Iceland - and since I only had a couple of days with a couple of meeting in Reykjavik I didn't really have time to venture outside the city. Pictures from Iceland are usually dominated by the islands majestic landscape as it is really a landscape photographers paradise, but Reykjavik is also worthy of a visit if you have a weekend to kill and a lot of flight-points to burn.

View from Reykjavik harbourProcessed with VSCO with kk1 preset Being a big guy with a decent size red beard, both tourists and local people thought that I was from Iceland, which was quite funny. The Iceland people are a great people, very friendly and very nordic with their sweaters, beards and beer.

Iceland is a country with a booming tourist industry ever since the volcano Eyjafjallajökull erupted in 2010, which results in some really shabby accommodations at some way to high prices because we booked only four weeks prior to the trip. Fair warning, the hot water out of the tap smells a little of rotten eggs because of the volcanic, didn't bother me but my colleague wasn't too fond about it.

If you fancy a beer while in Reykjavik, steer clear of all the regular mass produced brands and try one of the super beers from one of islands many microbreweries. I ended up in Sæta Svínið Gastropub twice and can only recommend it, for both beer and food. You will surely come across horse meat on the menu at some of the restaurants, it tastes a little like beef but sweeter, but personally I prefer beef.

If it matters, all images where shot with a Fujifilm X-Pro2 combined with a 35mm and 18mm lens and followingly processed with the VSCO camera app during the 4 hour flight home to Copenhagen.
