While Iceland is an expensive country to visit, and that’s unavoidable, there are plenty of ways to save money during your visit. Want to find out how? Link to new blog post in bio. (Bonus tip to get you started: stop comparing everything you buy to your homeland’s currency, because it’s a waste of time) 🇮🇸💰
For such a small country, Iceland has vast, unique landscapes that seem to completely contrast each other. Lush green valleys to sparse rocky deserts that somehow seemlessly fall into each other.
SEASONS: ❄ It is getting ridiculously cold in the Nordics now! During the freezing winter the Nordic people easily disconnect from the world: we prefer to stay home and get cozy with hot wine and gingerbread cookies.
The flavour palette also changes with the seasons: winter treats are heavier and sweeter than the delicacies enjoyed during the summertime. It makes sense: from the historical point of view it was necessary to build up the body fat content to survive the harsh conditions.
Winter drinks also follow this rule: think of Nordic peoples favourites like glögg, eggnogs and flips. What is your favourite winter drink?
📍 Tjörnin, Reykjavík. A pleasure to be around in all seasons, this body of water’s name literally translates to “pond”. The scenery varies quite drastically from each side, and since it’s not far from the city’s main square there are no excuses for missing out... 🚶🏾♂️🇮🇸
Harpa não é só um lugar bonito por fora, é por dentro também! 😍 Sem contar que é uma fuga perfeita do frio, com bônus de ter Wi-Fi gratuito liberado 🙌
Como a maioria das construções aqui da Islândia, o edifício tem uma fachada de vidro colorido inspirado na paisagem de basalto do país. E é tão impressionante que já foi contemplado pelo Mies Van der Rohe, prêmio de arquitetura contemporânea considerado o mais importante da Europa! Né pouca coisa não, viu? 👏

Comparing to the amazing landscape, the color scheme used on buildings are equally beautiful, check out some of the shots I have taken in Reykjavik while wonder around. From my previous visit.
