After arriving on Keflavik airport we took a bus straight to the Blue Lagoon. There are two bus companies, and you can buy tickets at the airport or book them online. There are also taxis. The busride took about 20-30 minutes. We only had two full days, and the Blue Lagoon is a bit away from the city centre, so it was convenient to do it from the airport before heading into town. They have storage for your luggage at the Blue Lagoon.

To get into town from our hotel we walked along the shore. It was overcast and the daylight came at 10 am! 

This is Harpa, a concert hall and conference centre. 

Harpa was designed by the Danish firm Henning Larsen Architects in co-operation with Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. The structure consists of a steel framework clad with geometric shaped glass panels of different colours (Wikipedia). 

Hallgrimskirkja is a Lutheran parish church. 
It is 73 metres/244 feet.

Reykavik is a very colorful town, filled with street art and a chilly wind..

The Icelandic language has a lot in common with Norwegian.  It is a bit easier to read than to hear the spoken word. 
Some of the words are just pure FUN, like this one above! 
(Hver =each Fis=fart Gata=street)

Street art!
