Going to the Land of Bjork...Maybe


My roommate in college was obsessed with Bjork, I on the other hand never really saw the excitement around her. I'm still not into her, but I do hope to visit her country.

Last week I had found a tour to China on sale, and I thought that we would be going on it, but after actually looking at the length of the tour, and the fact that we'd have to fly out of NYC, we moved on from that idea.

We are now looking at taking advantage of the declining financial climate in Iceland. We had planned on going to Iceland last year, but when my father bailed out of the trip, Matt and I decided to take advantage of the time and go to South Africa. The trip to South Africa pretty much emptied our wallets, and realistically we weren't even sure we'd be able to take a trip at all this year, but with prices the way we are, how can I say no!

My father is looking at coming with us this time (and even if he doesn't we'll still go on our own). I plan to hopefully book the flights and hotel this week!

Awesome. Do you plan on staying in any of the ice hotels? That'd be cooooool.

You need to go to an icehotel and take pictures. I'm so intrigued by them.

That's so cool! :) I'm sure that the trip will be awesome.

PS I've never really been into Bjork either. I just don't get it.

I found your blog through 20 something. I'm always excited to meet another travel lover :)

I have been to Iceland several times. Mostly on layovers but I have spent a weekend there. It is an amazing country. You wouldn't be disappointed. Check out http://munichbavaria.blogspot.com/search/label/iceland
