We finally got around to making our BEST OF REYKJAVÍK edition.
In fact, it is the one you’re browsing through at this very moment. This issue is therefore different from pretty much every issue we’ve done in our six years of being a magazine. For once, it’s almost all positive! All peppy ramblings about the stuff we like, love and/or adore. And isn’t that nice for a change? We all could do with some of that, I feel.
Oh, it’s still similar in a lot of ways. As per usual, it’s made of paper and it has pretty pictures and a bunch of text. There’s the usual music reviews, a couple of steady columns, travel articles and some minor ranting here and there. But for the most part, it’s devoted to the cause of sharing our thoughts on what we appreciate about the good city of Reykjavík.
We explain how we reached these conclusions elsewhere in the issue, but let me assert that it was by no means an easy task. There is a lot of stuff out we love in Reykjavík, and there is a lot of stuff we feel you should know about and try for yourself if you haven’t already. Of course, we couldn’t fit it all in, and of course we didn’t agree on everything. But it’s still a pretty good list, we are proud of it and we hope it truly reflects some of the very best Reykjavík has to offer in this day and age.
So go out, enjoy. Life is pretty good.
And write us lots of letters if you disagree. We love all your letters.
PS – have any of you guys checked out the new hidden “heart square” behind Laugavegur, by the old Hljómalind lot? It’s awesome.
