This was our last day in Akureyri, so we thought we have a look in the town itself. Some colourful houses.

We noticed that all red traffic lights have the shape of a heart. We found out that the hearts were created as a consequence of the finance crash in Iceland in 2008, when there was a need for some positive thinking. They were certainly thinking outside of the square.










In the town, we made some nice tall friends, unfortunately the didn’t fit onto the bike J

And finally we found the government controlled bottle shops in Iceland, they are called Vinbudin and had all this sign shown below.

Nevertheless, the prices were extremely expensive. Strange enough, Champaign (sparkling wine) was one of the cheapest alcoholic beverages that you could get. Anyway, we organized a bottle of red to celebrate, well, our holiday J
