Indjáni í Gleðigöngu

Indjáni í Gleðigöngu

Á hverju ári eru haldnir svokallaðir hinsegin dagar og hápunkturinn er gleðigangan sem er haldin á laugardeginum, þar má sjá margskonar skrautlegt fólk í skrautlegum búningum og tókum við vinkonurnar upp á því að bregða okkur í búning fyrir gönguna sjálfa. Við vorum tvær sem klæddum okkur upp sem indjánar og ein sem var klædd...
Mullers-æfingar á Klambratúni

Mullers-æfingar á Klambratúni

Ég fæddist í Reykjavík en flutti svo tveggja ára í Kópavog. Ég bjó þar þangað til að ég var 17 ára gamall, þá fluttist ég aftur til Reykjavíkur. Ég á margar minningar sem tengjast borginni og því er frekar erfitt að velja eina til að skrifa um. Það eru þó ákveðnar minningar, með ákveðinni manneskju,...

Minningargeymsla

Þórsgata er lítil og sæt gata í miðbæ Reykjavíkur. Hún er krúttleg og hefur mikinn karakter. Ótrúlegt en satt, þá er hún ekki einstefnugata en oft hef ég bölvað því í sand og ösku því ekki er auðvelt að mæta öðrum bíl þar. Ennþá erfiðara er nú samt að finna stæði þar. Ég á afskaplega...
Brúðkaup á FreyjugötuRóló

Brúðkaup á FreyjugötuRóló

Í lok júlí sumarið 2012 var stór stund í lífi vinkonu minnar og þáverandi kærasta / núverandi eiginmans, þau giftu sig og var það stórkosleg skemmtun í alla staði. Þetta var kannski óhefðbundið brúðkaup en ég held að það hafi bara gert það ennþá skemmtilegra. Þau voru að fara að flytja til San Francisco um...
New in town?

New in town?

(Íslenska) The french author Georges Perec (7 March 1936 – 3 March 1982) wrote this about visiting foreign towns in his book Species of Spaces / Espèce d'espaces (1974). We think he captures the mood of visiting, and getting to know little by little, a new town:

Grafarvogur Has A Hidden History And Some Treasure To Boot!

 How Reykjavík got to be what it is, part III As a kid I used to love visiting the district of Grafarvogur, mainly because Reykjavík’s garbage dump was located there and, as everyone knows, garbage dumps are great for treasure-hunting. I still have old foreign coins I found there amidst stacks of expired lamb-meat and...

Breiðholt: Where You Kick Cans Or Lampposts

How Reykjavík got to be what it is, part II If you have been wondering whether an old school ghetto can be found in Reykjavík, the answer is ‘sort of.’ What Icelanders refer to as their ‘ghetto’ is more commonly referred to as Breiðholt, a neighbourhood in the east part of the city. Breiðholt, built...

How Reykjavík Got To Be What It Is

The fabled area of 101 Reykjavík is a fun place, but there is certainly more to the city. Reykjavík is actually divided into ten districts, with the 101 area (101 is the postal code for the downtown area of Reykjavík) only encompassing five percent of the city. Driving through Reykjavík may feel like being on...

Enjoy the silence

The first weekend in August each year is the “Merchant’s Weekend” (icelandic: Verslunarmannahelgi), and following Monday is a holiday. During this weekend you’ll find various music festivals all around the country, one of the biggest...

Dreaming Away

Dreaming Away

When I come to Reykjavík, I always visit this place near the harbor. From there, you can watch the ocean and just dream away. And sometimes, when you´re lucky, a ship passes the horizon and you´re able to take a beautiful picture!
