The September/October issue of Atlantica, Icelandair’s in-flight magazine, has been released just in time for fall to blow into town.
In this edition, Jonas Moody sits down for a tête-à-tête with British savant Daniel Tammet, who has an uncanny knack for numbers, languages, and the number pi.
Eliza Reid sinks her teeth into street food from around the globe, including fried spiders in Cambodia, juice larvae in South Africa, greasy kebabs in the UK, and a nice glass of American lemonade to wash it all down.
This season Atlantica sends Jonas Moody to Washington, DC to explore the US capital’s ethnic enclaves like Adams Morgan and the U Street Corridor, while Sara Blask heads to Helsinki for a romp in Finnish design, life at the market, and a day trip to Tallinn, Estonia, just a ferry-ride away. Editor Sveinn Gudmarsson strikes out for the wild West Fjords to give us a rundown of the best out-of-the-way museums in that part of the country.
This issue also covers the pleasures and terrors of home swapping, a photo guide to rounding up Icelandic sheep, a preview of this year’s Airwaves music festival, and last but not least, a spectacular spread on the dazzling colors of autumnal Iceland.
