681. Europe in Winter | (Rest of) Day 1 and 2 in Reykjavik

view of Reykjavik
After I left off from yesterday's post, we slept until the late afternoon. Then we went for a walk around the town, had dinner and got back to the hotel for an early night. We ended up sleeping quite early as well.

This "morning" we woke up around 2pm. Well, we woke up earlier but I felt sick and had to go back to sleep. We were planning to go on a day tour to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula but I felt too nauseous and had to reschedule for Monday. I think I am finally feeling better now though after the long sleep. & I was able to keep my lunch down so my energy is coming back.

Today we spent some hours just walking around again. We went up to Hallgrimskirkja Church for a nice view over the city. I really love all the colourful buildings here. We are now sitting at a cafe working.

In about an hour we booked a tour to see the Northern Lights. I'm so excited! I really really hope we will be able to see them. We haven't had the best luck with the weather here as its been raining on and off since we arrived (and forecasted to continue doing so), so it's not the best conditions to see the lights. I will update tomorrow on how it goes..wish us luck!

Polar Bears are huge! I didn't realize they were this tall. I can't imagine standing in front of one lol.

Reykjavik dinner
Dinner last night (I was barely able to eat much though). I like the style of restaurants here. They are all cozy and candlelit.
