Reykjavik Zoo review

Now that we’ve started doing some serious travel with Stink I’ve tried to provide a good balance between family-friendly activities and grown-up activities (i.e. shopping, museums, etc).  During our 3-day stopover in Iceland we decided to dedicate a full day to exploring Reykjavik.  It’s a fairly small city compared to American cities but Reykjavik is […]
