I was travelling with Iceland Air this weekend and had a stop in Reykjavik. I was a bit disappointed that my layover was too short to see what Iceland was like, but I did get to experience some of the weather-- instead of a boarding tunnel, passengers walked down airplane stairs and across the pavement to get to the gate. It was cold and rainy and a strong wind made it hard to walk. On the good side, this brief experience made the cold and rainy weather I encountered upon arriving in England much more bearable.
The Icelandic language was great to read and listen to, with letters like þ (soft 'th' like in 'theme') and ð (hard 'th' like in 'with'). As I went þrough security I tried to read out loud all ðe signs I saw.
