Which city makes my heart beat?

Reykjavik

Without any doubt, the tiny and friendly Reykjavik (Iceland's capital). It is so close to nature… and nature is wild there. This is part of why I love Iceland. It is like a world just born. Another interesting point of Iceland is that you truly can't get anything done if you bury yourself in your basement. Communication is key and benefits everyone. Bjór, someone?

Where is the most relaxing place in your world?

Where is the most relaxing place in your world?

Without hesitation, the Icelandic inner wasteland. Its beauty is soothing, purifying.

Contrarily to popular beliefs, Iceland is not a cold country. Strasbourg, in France, has almost the same temperatures (or even below!)

What makes Iceland so particular is also the warmth of its inhabitants. It’s not another cliché, but a truth.

The language may be irritating for sensitive ears who’ll prefer latin languages. As a Swede, I feel at home even if “Ég tala íslensku ekki svo vel“!

Also, Iceland has NO nuclear power plant, but uses only natural resources. Geothermy is king!

Being vegan, ecologist and some kind of animal rights activist, I can only feel great there.

When it comes to my places of stay, I have found 101 Hotel in Reykjavik to be very suitable. Its unique design, so modern that it’s quite another world, the colors, the shapes, so organic…

Well, you get it, I love this place. Its spacious and comfy suites are also of an absolute beauty.

I sometimes choose less expensive stays, like rented old fisherman houses in Akureyri…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Opportunity

How could I ever even dream about this? Glad I had my iPhone’s camera!

Glad I was sailing near Akureyri, in Iceland.
