Favorite thing: One of the really nice things about having a car here is the ease with which you can take short trips out to enclaves and neighborhoods in Greater Reykjavik. The Alftanes peninsula is just a ten minute drive (if that much) from the center city, but it feels "out there." This was the manor of the important Icelandic chieftain and bard Snorri Snurrson, and has been the home of the Icelandic President since Independence came in 1944. The Bessastadir Church is used for important national events and festivals.
