I might have to move to Reyjavik for a three-month work assignment starting in mid-October...yes I know, it's dark in December! I'm concerned about cost of living differences between New York City and Reykjavik as I have been here before for a week. What would a typical weekly shopping bill be? What about dinner at a good restaurant for 1 person?
Are there other hidden expenses? I have looked into a few extended stay options for housing but wonder if anyone has any suggestions. Also, is there a place to rent a car on a monthly rate?
I went to the World Class gym (I think it's also called Laugaeur, or in that area) and it was great; the largest in Iceland. Are there other good gyms or places that offer Yoga or even tennis?
I'm a male in my late 30's and single and am also wondering about where it is good to go out. I noticed in Reykjavik that things seemed a bit dead during the week but heard that Friday and Saturday nights are crazy. I'm not much of a late night person. Are there places to go to meet people without having to be out very late?
Thanks for your help!
