My regular readers may have noticed that I get into subject-habits. For a while, I was rather fixated on finding all the street art in Reykjavik, but as the summer approached, my attention was shifted to all the beautiful old cars the locals bring out to show off in the short period of good weather.

The latest batch of snazzy retro rides: 1. Mercedes 200 series mid-1980 2.Ford Fairlane or Galaxie 1961-1964 3. 1966 or 67 Ford Mustang 4. Porsche 911 Targa (1990’s?). Many thanks to my dad for identifying all these pretty cars for me. The Benz is my favorite. My dad used to drive a not so spiffed up ’85 350 diesel, so […]

Sights seen along the southwest section of the Ring Road, from Egilsstaðir to Vík. We were picked up by the drivers of the orange VW Van outside of Skaftafell. We had been waiting for almost an hour without luck when we saw it approaching in the distance. “Look at that…wouldn’t it be great if, after all […]
The following two images are from the Akureyri Museum. It was a 30 minute walk from downtown, but well worth the walk. And the road there formed the main part of Old Akureyri, which was all lovely old houses and no tourists. I also stopped at a wonderful little antique store (where I bought dozens […]
