When we first started talking about going to Iceland, my knowledge of the country was limited to Björk and the fact that Iceland is green while Greenland is icy — not a whole lot to get excited about.
But now that we’ve done our initial planning, I can’t wait to visit Iceland. It’s beautiful and, compared to other European countries, quiet. The population is just over 300,000 — about 8% of the population of Los Angeles — and there’s much wildlife to see (can you say puffin chicks?).
We’ll be traveling east from Reykjavík along the southern coast for 10 days, and one of our favorite things to do is eat. We also like light hiking and we’ll be traveling with a baby. Leave a comment and tell us what to do!
Here’s where we’re staying overnight:
- Westman Islands
Help us plan our trip to Iceland! Here’s what we want to know:
- What should we do?
- What should we eat?
- What should we drink?
- What else should we know?
Tell us in the comments what you think we should do. Thanks for helping us plan our trip to Iceland!
