Flash back Reykjavík

and some impressions of Iceland. I have come across these photos lately, which were hidden on hard disk and was thinking I have to share them with you.:-)

In Iceland I was surprised by very introverted people, outstanding natural beauty, the perfect lamb meat ever ( I can assure you better than the New Zealand lamb:-)) and probably the most secure country in the world.

The personal highlight for me was to enjoy the longest day in Ìsafjördur when the sun touched the horizon at midnight for a moment only. We also chased seals on Jökulsárlón, a large glacial lagoon in southeast Iceland, providing outstanding views of the icebergs and well-known as a shooting location through films like James Bond´s; Die Another Day or Lara Croft´s; Tomb Raider.

If you want to see more photos of the Iceland trip, let me know. I have plenty of them.:-)

Reykjavík Summit ; a meeting  between U.S. President Ronald Reagan and General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev, held in Höfði in Reykjavík, on October 11-12, 1986?
