Went past a new gelateria on Laugavegur today. Thought ‘Great! A new ice cream place similar to Valdís. The more the merrier!’ That was until I tasted their ice cream & saw their prices. Pfft. Verdict: VALDÍS RULES SUPREME. And that’s where we went.

This is what awaited the handsome cod we caught in Skagafjörður yesterday. What a great day we had with such lovely people.

The swimming pool at Hofsós. Trumps even the pool at Krossnes as the most beautiful pool in #Iceland. <3
