Iceland: Gardur


I saw some amazing photos from Gardur on this blog that my cousin recommended, so I put it on the list as a town to stop by on our way to Reykjavik.  It was perfectly Icelandic and beautiful, but the weather was a harsh wakeup call.  It was freezing.

I don’t know where in the world I learned that Iceland and Greenland are actually opposite of their descriptions because the Vikings wanted to deter people from coming to their secret spot….but it’s wrong.  It’s freezing here.  I asked the receptionist at our hotel–Is this how the weather is all the time? And she said: It’s ICELAND! Like I was crazy for even asking that question.

It’s fine. I am so glad we packed for the weather!

Some snaps of Gardur:

IMG_8706I wish I had investigated this sculpture more-it’s beautiful.  I saw another one of two fisherman looking out to see in the same posture somewhere else.
