Reykjavik: Thoroughly Modern, Thoroughly Icelandic

Reykjavik has found an appealing niche as a thoroughly modern city, with a thoroughly Icelandic attitude. By Bekah McNeel When you think of the next generation of destination cities, Portland, Austin, Asheville, you probably think of quirky, hip, individualistic vibes.
