Dedicated To Making The Best Of Reykjavík


Published June 18, 2010

I am in sort of a hurry. See, I’m leaving for a short trip to Spain in about twenty minutes, and I’ve yet to pack and shower and do all sorts of things one should do before embarking upon short trips to Spain.
What I’ll be doing there, I cannot tell you. I’m not sure.
I was hoping to catch some sun, hang out in their famous cafés, munch on a croissant or two, see the Louvre and maybe take a leisurely stroll down the famous 5th arrondissement. And visit some of their fabled gay underground nightclubs (as made famous by films such  as Irréversible. But who knows what I’ll get up to?) Spain is a large country with many people in it. And I plan to EMBRACE THE UNIVERSE AND WHATEVER IT THROWS MY WAY!
And so should you. Every day.
Anyway. Enough about me. Let’s talk about you. Or your views and opinions in any case.
Listen. We’ll be publishing our second annual BEST OF REYKJAVÍK issue in a couple of weeks. You know what that’s all about, right? With the help of y’all readers (not to mention all our friends, enemies and associates), we try and point out some of THE BEST things Reykjavík’s got going for it at the moment.
It’s not about commerce, buying stuff, selling stuff or advertising stuff. It’s about celebrating the city we inhabit (or are visiting), underlining and pointing out some of its more positive aspects – the ones that make living here bearable-to-awesome—and ceremoniously ignoring the rest.
Yes we need your help. We need you to contribute; we need your voice in there. For you are us and we are he as you are me and we are all together now, and so on and so forth.
Let’s build something good, OK? OK. So in that spirit, here are some sample questions for you to ponder.
Where do you buy your favourite soup in Reykjavík, and why?
What is your favourite place to eat in Reykjavík, and why?
What is your favourite daytrip out of Reykjavík, and why?
