Been riding around Reykjavik for 2 1/2 days now and the smile is stuck permanently on my face

Took some photos:

In front of Hallgrimskirkja (Church of Hallgrim):

And by an artpiece called Solfarid (Sun-ship...or something...) down by the sea, Mount Esja can be seen in the background.

Reykjavik is lovely. I bet riding in the countryside is quite spectacular. I can't wait to make it over there again one day.

That pic is taken from the top of Hallgrimskirkja (see in my first pic above), so if they would have been taken at the same time you would be able to see a tiny GTV on the ground... and well probably me as well taking the photo of my GTV... hmmm this is getting too deep

Gonzo your Vespa's beauty is matched by the beauty of Iceland in those photos you posted. I too would love to see more of your country. I'll need to book a cruise that stops there. 8)

Sorry guys, no pics for a while. I guess the spring isn't here yet. The weather has gotten colder in Reykjavik, it's now gone down below 0°C and it started snowing this evening. The forecast says it will stay like this for at least 5 days, or as far as they will say, so I'll have to hope it will get warmer next week... My GTV is now in my friends garage... Crying or Very sad emoticon

I got at least 250 km on the meter in these 5 days that I was riding, I can't wait for the weather to get better so I can ride some more 8)

Here is a pic of my GTV under the cover, which is symbolic for the hibernation mode she's in now...

Here are two pics from that ride, the Vespa leg-cover came in handy in the -1°C brrrrrr...

First is a picture in front of our Independence hero Jon Sigurdsson...

Thanks guys, since the weather is a bit better here now I am trying to squeeze all the riding I can out of it. Took a few more pics of the GTV in Reykjavik, this time by the pond in the City Center.


Here you can see towards the city center, City Hall is just by the top-box

This one is towards the west side of town, in the top left corner is the National Museum...

And finally here you can see the a nice shot of Hallgrimskirkja in the background (the Church of Hallgrim) which can also be seen here above in the first post of this thread...

I'm really looking forward to warmer weather, but as long as I can ride I'm not complaining 8)

Actually the GTV is not on a road, but on a sidewalk...unfortunately we have quite heave traffic here in Reykjavik, far to many cars for this small city
But I intend to change that a bit 8)

And yes Reykjavik can be beautiful in nice weather...wish it was a bit more often...
