Voice of Travelers to Reykjavik
How I was able to film at Reykjavjik
I am Adam, a filmmaker from New York. I always liked making films based on interesting places like Reykjavik. I think there’s no place more enchanted like Reykjavik. Fortunately, I got a film grant from a production company to shoot an original story. This was finally my ticket to Reykjavik. I suggested that we shoot in Reykjavik. Luckily, the producers agreed. With a small crew, I boarded Delta Airlines a few weeks after buying our ticket. The airplane staff was so accommodating to us. Anyway, when we reached Reykjavik, I felt that I was transported to another universe. We were able to shoot at Hallgrímskirkja church and the Blue lagoon, two of Reykjavik’s most popular attractions. I hope my film made justice to the beauty that is Reykjavik. I hope this was ticket to more films across Europe. It was definitely a dream come true. My hands are clamoring for a ticket to return.
I've Got a Ticket to Ride… A flight to Reykjavik
I’m Trent, a musician from Austria. I was always a fan of the Beatles ever since. My favorite song from them was, “ticket to ride.” Recently, I went to Reykjavik to witness the Imagine Peace Tower on Videy Island. This outdoor beam of light was dedicated by Yoko Ono to her husband, John Lennon. We bought our ticket to Reykjavik almost immediately after we found out that it was going to be lit this year. Aboard the Austrian Airlines, we were welcomed with warm smiles from stewards. Aside from the Imagine Peace Tower, we also witnessed the spectacular view of the northern lights during our stay at Reykjavik. I was really amazed by the view. It was so surreal. My trip to Reykjavik was definitely something I will never forget. My ticket to ride to Reykjavik was also unforgettable because of Reykjavik’s night scene which was sheer fun. Reykjavik was great. I can’t wait for my next ticket back.
