With little shops and boutiques lining both sides of the street, Laugavegur Shopping Street is especially charming during winter with its snowfall, perfect for a little window-shopping.

Little Timberland House in Iceland
I love this little Timberland house (shop) here. It looked as if it didn’t fit in at Laugavegur Shopping Street, but yet had such a lovely quaint architecture that I could not help falling in love with it.
By the way, the Timberland is slightly cheaper than what we get in Singapore, owing mainly to the fact that the prices are related to shoe-size!!
