The moment I see Reykjavik disappearing in the rearview mirror of our rented car, I’m starting to feel different. The landscape is changing and our road trip has now officially started. You can’t compare a capital like Reykjavik to any other capital in Europe. It often feels more like a village than a city. But you don’t go to Iceland for its urban life, you come to explore its extreme and magical landscape. And that’s what we’re doing now. We’re hitting the main road (route 1), pressing play on our Iceland road trip playlist, still not knowing exactly what’s waiting for us along the way.
