A tourist visiting Iceland was devastated after losing his phone in Reykjavík while walking back to his hotel. The man thought all hope was lost, but received a Facebook message three days later from a woman in Reykjavik, who claimed she had found his lost phone.

The man told his story on Reddit  thanking the woman for her kindness.

According to the Reddit message, the traveler left Reykjavík after losing his phone on a 6 day self-drive tour out of the capital city, but was quick to leave a message for the woman when he would be returning from the tour. 

Then, just three days later, the traveler met the Icelandic woman at his hotel in order to pick up the phone.

Not only was his phone returned, but the Icelandic woman had added in some beautiful pictures of Reykjavik at 3am in the morning.
