Every issue, we will interview someone living in Reykjavík or just visiting the city, so as to share with you, dear reader, the trials and tribulations of daily life here in the capital.

This issue’s human: Kenny Fang, a tourist from China

On what brings him to Reykjavík

“I’m from Guangzhou, China. I was studying in Finland and I graduated this summer. Also my girlfriend is from Finland. So my parents attended my graduation and after that we decided to go on a Nordic trip all together. And Iceland, of course, is one amazing Northern country.”

On the activities

“We will stay in Iceland only for one day. We are just planning to walk around the city centre, buy some local gifts and then take a tour to the Blue Lagoon. As we have been traveling for thirteen days now, I’m pretty sure that next we are going back to Helsinki.”

On the differences between Iceland and China

“I cannot name many differences with China because we just landed a couple of hours ago and everything seems fresh to us. But I should definitely mention that it is really calm in here and also the town seems to be really small. Not even small but very tiny and the buildings are very short also.”
