Espresso arrives in Reykjavík, 1958

icelandwantstobeyourfriend:

My people like to drink coffee.

From icelandphotoarchive, who said

The first espresso bar opened in Reykjavík on 9 January 1958. From a newspaper that day: “The coffee there is made with an Italian method using steam pressure and is supposed to be very strong and uplifting.”

I’ve always liked this leaning wall. This is Listasafn Reykjavíkur (The Reykjavík Art Museum). Be sure to check it out and the Reykjavík Museum of Photography next door.

On the list. Thank you!

Women’s day off in Reykjavík 1975
The 24th of October 1975 women all over Iceland took the day off. This was done to show how essential they and their low paying jobs were for the economy. Only five years later Vigdís Finnbogadóttir became Iceland’s and the World’s first female president.

Hitchhiking in Iceland is quite common and might work at least if you don’t have too much baggage and are willing to pay a bus fare as backup.
The only problem with hitchhikers is that they tend to smell so make sure you don’t look like you smell. This girl should be successful.
