VoM2: Update From Reykjavik

I’ve been in Reykjavik for a few days and just realized I haven’t posted anything since I got here. I also realized I haven’t taken any photos! That doesn’t really mean anything, except maybe that everything has been normal, uneventful and not very interesting.

Reykjavik is a modest little city with a typically compact — even crowded — little “old town” which features plenty of restaurants, bars shops, etc. It’s easy to walk around, but it’s not particularly pretty or interesting to me. Surrounding that is a modern sprawl of commercial buildings and suburbs, neither of which appeals to me. I guess I’ve become too little of a “city guy” after so much time out in the wilds.

I’m heading over to Greenland tomorrow for a few days of exploration around Disko Bay. My guess is that’s “really out there” so I imagine I’ll have something more interesting to report. Assuming, of course, that there’s internet available. Either way, I’ll be back in Reykjavik late next week in time for my young friend Christian to arrive and head out on our two-week road trip all the way around the island.

So, stay tuned!
