Iceland Travel Guide
Just ridiculously pretty.
I was skeptical at first with the number of people that have been to Iceland in the past 5 years.

This Iceland travel guide will help you plan your next vacation.

https://goingawesomeplaces.com/hilton-reykjavik-nordicaI’m just going to put this out there. Iceland is ridiculously beautiful. There’s been a rise in tourism there and a ton of hype. Over these past 5 years, you couldn’t go on Facebook without seeing one of your friends sharing photos of Iceland. I needed to see for myself and now that I’m […]
I honestly didn’t know what to expect when I clicked on “Book” on the WOW Air website. There are no pretences that they’re as good as their national carrier but I quickly learned that they’re okay with that and they sure have fun with it. We jumped on WOW Air simply because they beat Icelandair when […]
Iceland has been on the bucket list for a long time now. A lot of it is honestly the amount of buzz and press this island nation has gotten these past couple of years. Not like it needs much advertising because the landscape speaks for itself. Having spent 8 days myself, I can now say […]
