Auður - I heart Reykjavík  Hi there, I'm Auður and I'm mad about my home: Iceland. I want to help you realize how awesome it is too so I created a blog. It's pretty rad.

A couple of weeks ago my mum and I tried making a spontaneous visit to Friðheimar Tomato Farm because we were craving their soup. We were not the only ones who got that idea though and even though they've added a lot of tables since I was last there the wait was too long and we ended up just snapping this photo and leaving again.

The lesson learned? If you really really want their soup you should always book a table. Or be prepared to wait a good while.

Breakfast of champions - Happy Pride everyone 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈 #helloreykjavik #iceland #Reykjavik #reykjavikpride #reykjavikpride2018

I visited the @einarjonssonmuseum yesterday and like always I really enjoyed it (although due to the sheer number of places on the agenda I couldn't spend as much time there as I would have liked). Definitely worth adding to your list of things to do in Reykjavik - especially paired with a visit to the museum's garden.
The museum is open every day except Mondays from 10:00 to 17:00 and the admission is 1000 ISK.

I spent the day today with my new friend Rick Steves helping him update the Reykjavík chapter in his new Iceland guide. I've done tours with all kinds of celebrities before but never have I been with someone who got stopped as often by very excited travelers wanting to get their photos taken with him and just thanking him for his shows and books. I particularly liked this one lady who said somethings of the likes of: "OMG, you're Rick Steves" and then turned to me and said: "and you're the lady from I Heart Reykjavik". SCORE! 😂

I also have never visited as many museums in one day like today and now I need a foot bath after all the walking 😄

Takk @ricksteveseurope for a lovely day!

Started this warmest day of the summer here in Reykjavík with a 2 hour hike on the outskirts of city. “How warm“ you ask? 14.2°C baby 😄☀️#helloreykjavik #iceland #Reykjavik #summer #summeriniceland #lupines

Laugarneskirkja church is the work of the same architect that designed Hallgrímskirkja: Guðjón Samúelsson. It was funded by the people in the neighborhood and it took 9 years to build, which is a whole lot better than the 40+ years it took to build Hallgrímskirkja. The current priest in Laugarneskirkja is a (former?) comic that had a popular radio show for a while and did sketch comidy on TV with his comedy partner in crime (who is now a bicycle tour guide - I think). I wonder if any of that carries into his sermons. It's a nice building though and a lovely neighborhood #helloreykjavik #iceland #Reykjavik

Quintessential Reykjavík ❤️ #helloreykjavik #iceland #Reykjavik

Reykjavík is known for its friendly cats. I can't say this beauty was particularly friendly but let's just say my photography attempts were tolerated 😄📸🐈 #helloreykjavik #iceland #Reykjavik #catsofreykjavik #catsofinstagram
