Day one was very successful. We arrived at Reykjavik at 8am and of course since it was Sunday, nothing was open except the cutest little bakery/coffee shop. We stopped in and had our first taste of Skyr yogurt w granola and fruit and a coffee. After, we went up to the Leif Ericsson church and went up to the top of the tower. Excellent view of the city! We went on a great walking tour and then grabbed some quick lunch. We were severely tired so grabbed a quick nap and then headed to the local swimming pool. They have lanes, a big outdoor pool and a couple hot tubs. The process to get in did not feel weird (showering naked beforehand and getting dressed) and the pool felt wonderful. To top it off there was a great water slide that was completely closed and long and super high. I was pleasantly surprised by the cool effects inside, LED lights to brighten your way.
Walked along the water on the way back to the city center, and grabbed really expensive Italian food (split a veggie pizza, a salad, and two glasses of wine = $100). Then went to a local hole in the wall bar that was pretty awesome. It was really bizarre walking back at midnight with the sun fully shining.
