Reykjavik orientation

We ventured a little further than the square by our hotel, walking around the city we found quite a lot of street art. The city itself, although the capital of the country, is quite small with most of the centre within easy walking distance. So the city isn't large enough to warrant rail transit, there are plenty of buses and the city airport (serving mostly internal flights) is an ever present feature with planes flying low over the city centre on their final approach.
