Sunday morning viking

Hallgrímskirkja

#SundayMorning @IcelandTravelTO @IcelandNatural #Iceland

This Leif Erikson on the bow of a viking ship statue can be found in Iceland. Fun fact: The sculpture came before the church (Hallgrímskirkja). Another fun fact: The church is somewhat similar to another church (Grundtvig’s Church–completed 5 years before construction began on Hallgrímskirkja) I visited on the same trip in Copenhagen.

Ramen Momo

Ramen in Iceland? The thought (and the high reviews on TripAdvisor) caused my mouth to water. However, I did not enjoy my bowl, even though I was very hungry. The few poor reviews seem to be on the tonkotsu side (which is also what I ordered) so maybe go for the miso variety if you eat here.

Einar Jonsson’s Thor Wrestling With Age (Elli og Þór) Reykjavik, Iceland

If you ever find yourself in Reykjavik, chances are pretty good that you will experience rain. Reykjavik averages over 3 inches of rain per month, nearly every month of the year. There isn’t really a dry season.

The Einar Jonsson Museum is a great place to escape the rain. The indoor portion costs about $10, but the outdoor sculpture park and Einar Jonsson statue walk are both free. They look better in the rain actually.

Heading back to the midnight sun

Tomorrow morning I’m heading north again. Tomorrow night I’ll spend the night in a ship hotel in Stockholm, and Friday I’ll head even farther north. I’ll have the bring the sleeping eye mask to get a bit of darkness.

I won’t make it quite as high north as I was in Iceland, but I don’t think it will get completely dark in Gävle.
