Random round Reykjavik

In a similar notion to odd things I didn’t buy in Japan, I thought I would share a photo collection of random things I found in and around Reykjavik…

Fresh Icelandic Mountain Air. They were selling these cans in a shop outside of Reykjavik (Geysir, I think), yours for a bargain price of 1,100 ISK (which equates to roughly £5GBP!). Needless to say I didn’t buy one and instead opted for the free version outside.

Here’s the nutrition facts…

What amuses me is the part that states this is a “collectors item” – do people collect cans of fresh air from around the world then?

I spotted these two pieces of street art just on the sides of shops in the centre of Reykjavik, my hubby thought the ‘how to tie a tie’ wall art was pretty useful but my favourite was the giraffe who came here to chew bubblegum and kick ass! How can you not love a giraffe in 3D glasses 🙂

This quirky little shop was tucked away in a corner off of the main pedestrian street in Reykjavik. I didn’t buy anything in there but I liked how cute it looked.

Speaking of cute…

This festive letterbox was outside a Christmas themed shop in the centre of Reykjavik. We weren’t quite ready for Christmas in October but we still bought an adorable tree ornament all the same.

And last but not least, my favourite quirky thing in Reykjavik….

A place for all the single gloves to hang out! – Single gloves speed dating never dies…

We walked past this gate a couple of times and the gloves hanging out there actually changed! Speed dating for gloves actually works. Perhaps someone should set one up for lost socks too!
