Iceland is a warm country, very warm indeed.

Last week in Copenhagen it was freezing cold, zero centigrade.

Back home at KEF International Airport it was the same temperature, but it was warm. Summerlike, even.

Zero in Copenhagen is so much colder than zero in Reykjavík.

The humidity on the continent makes zero feel ten degrees colder. Or more.

I think Copenhagen has the worst winter climate on planet earth: gray, gray, endless gray days, and cold and humid. The summers in Iceland’s former colonial capital can, on the other hand, be great.

The best climate in the world, though, is in Auckland, Beirut, or Cape Town.
