I had the great luck to be invited to Iceland last week. It was a last minute thing, but I decided to adjust my schedule, and do everything possible to go.
I mean, how often do you get invited to Iceland?
It was so last minute, that I didn’t have much time to do any research. I had no idea what to expect, beyond geysers and fermented shark meat.
One thing I totally did not expect were the brightly painted buildings that line the streets of downtown Reykjavik. You expect that kind of thing in Burano. But Iceland? And what’s the deal with building out of corrugated iron?
Anyway, as a start to what will be a series of Iceland posts, I’ll share these extremely surprising, colorful and cheerful houses.
Doesn’t it make you start humming “Little Boxes on the Hillside”?
I traveled to Iceland as a guest of the Food & Fun festival, and my airfare was paid for by Iceland Air.
