Iceland Day 6 – A long way to Arkanes

  I woke up, had a quick breakfast and went to the city center afterwards. I slandered through the shopping streets and bought some souvenirs and food. And I also went to the Harpa to see it for the last time. It looked simply stunning and beautiful in the morning sun.

But first of all, I stopped at an Icelandic bakery to eat some typical pastry. I have to say, they are really good at baking pastry. When I left Selfoss, 2 women stopped for me. The Canadian women were so happy to give me a lift because it was one of their points written on their bucket list. It is part of the culture in Iceland to stop …
