14 March 2017, Tuesday (My Birthday)
I woke up early and drove to Blue Car Rental Office to return my car and then leisurely strolled back to our apartment. After breakfast, we started our Reykjavik exploration.
Just beside our apartment is this kindergarten. We peeked in between the fencing to see what the toddles were doing…. so cute.
A short walk to Hallgrimskirkja Church….
And a silhouette view.
The church was packed with tourists.
The musician at work. The organ pipes are mounted in front of church.
We brought the tickets and took the lift to the viewing platform at the top of the church.
The Front View of the church.
A short clip of what we saw when view from the top of the church. The background wind was deafening.
while most people focus on the front of the church….the walk way behind the church was relatively empty. Look like a space shuttle.
On our way to Perlan. Colorful Pattern.
We had hot coffee, cakes, biscuits and some good rest.
I love the reflective Glass panel.
many onlooker thought it was model photo session.
We had enough of reflective photo session…. heading out of Perlan. Our friends went crazy with these monuments.
Just before we inched further from Perlan….the wind turned ferocious and we experienced our first hailstorm in our life.
It was sunny again and we leisurely strolled towards Tjörnin swan lake…. walk and rest.
Yes… Tjörnin swan lake.
Happy flying soul.
The birds were flying off and it was also time for us to move on….
We had the famous Reykjavik Hot Dog
and from far I thought I can have free beer at an outlet. I rush forward….
There were plentiful of art pieces everywhere.
and wonders what are these groves for….
It was a long walk to Sun Voyager.
Sun Voyager Sun Set
Leisurely we strolled to Harpa Concert Hall.
Inside Harpa – felt as if entrance into glassy honeycomb.
It was dinner time….We had dinner at Fish Market – Fiskmarkadurinn. It was local catch tinted with Japanese flavour. Looked good and tasted wonderful… everything seemed so perfect.
Complimentary and starter
Then the grand Finale….
After dinner, its prayer time….before we headed back to our apartment.
I had a wonderful and very enjoyable Birthday in Reykjavik. I really wish everyday of my life is enjoyable and is filled with colorful and wonderful varieties…
