By the blue bayou

Of course, I have been to the coastline many times, up and down along the capital coastlines. And, as always, the area surprises me. In a positive way. Laugarnes, with its walking and cycling paths, museums, wharfs, lighthouse and many other attractions is so special. A completely different. view of Reykjavík in a very positive way. Icelandic Times / Land & Saga went out and about, breathed in the fresh sea air, met up with people and enjoyed welcoming the spring, Við sundin bláu, as the capital city residents call Kollafjörður at Laugarnes in Reykjavík.
