Reykjavik City Walk

Today it’s so sunny! It’s almost too hot for wearing a scarf. 🙂 The perfect day for a walk through Reykjavik.

This is Domkirkjan, the city’s oldest church.

Here we see the entrance to The Parliament Garden.

This is Fríkirkjan, and Tjörnin.

View from one side of Tjörnin. You see Landakotskirkja on the right.

Since there are no flowers yet, I had to find something else with a bit of color.

Sunshine on moss is always pretty.

New job

Since the beginning of this year I have a full-time job at a destination management company in Reykjavik and I’m enjoying it. The company has some really interesting projects lined up. I’m very happy that I can work in Dutch. Of course not everything is going smoothly yet, and I still have to learn a lot of things. It’s quite different from running Actie Redactie. With mixed feeling I said goodbye to parts of Actie Redactie, like my website and business mail. One day before the mail service went offline I got a request to edit a new book for a publishing house. I had to decline this assignment, which felt a bit sad/weird/counterintuitive. But I know it’s the right decision and as I said I’m very happy with my new job!

Here is Reykjavik all is going well. Living together is quite awesome and we have a good routine going. Spring is not really in the air, since springtime doesn’t exist here … but to be fair temperatures are at least a couple of degrees above zero and we have had some beautiful sunny days. Daylight is increasing: today’s sunrise was at 8.20 and sunset is at 19.00! No flowers yet though, and the grass is having this foul rotten smell because it has been covered by snow for so long. Yep, we’re not there yet.

I’m looking forward to the Easter trip that’s planned to Hraunfossar, Barnafoss and Deildartunguhver. It’s going to be nice to explore an area I haven’t been to before.
Okay, that’s the news from my side. How’s everybody doing? 🙂
