Iceland!

The anti-spring break

snow 25 °F

When it came time to start thinking of where we would go for spring break this year, Mike & I started throwing ideas around. One place that we've been looking at for years was Iceland but it just never worked out. This year, we must have hit just the right timing because we found a great package with both airfare from Boston and 6 nights hotel for only $600. Who could pass that up?

I know, who goes to Iceland for spring break? It's cold. Well, it's not any colder than here in Columbus. In fact, it's warmer in Reykjavik, Iceland today than it is here. Plus, there are some really cool things to see in Iceland. Where in Florida can you see Vikings, glaciers and the "original" geyser. (Take THAT Old Faithful!)

What will be be doing and seeing in Iceland? It depends. Our number one priority - if Mother Nature agrees - is the Northern Lights. We've both been itching to see them and hopefully the weather will cooperate. There are also a lot of Viking sites and other cool places to check out. Some may depend on the weather. We're actually going into this somewhat unplanned. Which is very much unlike us. We'll have to take it day by day to see what we can see...maybe a whale?

I've got my wool sweaters laid out with my warm Peruvian hat and gloves. I'll be toasty warm. So, stick around and keep an eye out. I'll post updates and pictures as I can.

Here's hoping for clear skies!
