Reykjavik@Christmas

For the Christmas/New Year holiday season, R — my wife and travel companion — and I flew to Reykjavik for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see our favourite band, Sigur Ros, and some of their closest artsy friends party it up at the first Norður og Niður, North and Down (“Straight to Hell”) festival. In the process, we hoped to enjoy a little winter wonderland, chase the aurora, and field test our iPhone Xs as travel cameras.
 
So late in December, we winged it from a balmy and blue-skied Tokyo, north, north, north, above frozen Russia and Scandinavia, almost to the Arctic Circle and Santa Claus country.
