Though I live in Chicago, there’s no place I feel more at home in than Iceland. From the moment I saw the lights of Keflavik airport blinking in the darkness after the (surprisingly short) flight from New York, it just felt familiar, comfortable. Since then that feeling has only gotten stronger. Though I spend most of my days in an apartment thousands of miles away, my heart is in Reykjavik. So when National Geographic asked me to complete their “I Heart My City” questionnaire for Reykjavik, I was thrilled.
From where I go for late night eats to what I do when I’m feeling cash-strapped, you’ll find all my best tips for seeing Reykjavik like a local in my answers. So if you’re dying to know which celebrity the city would be (hint: she’s pretty and feisty) or which song most reminds of Reykjavik, click on over and read it here: I Heart My City: Katie’s Reykjavik.
