Iceland, the winter wonderland for avid explorers, the place where they built a highway around an elf rock and the country I just went for my vacation. Here are five of the things that make Iceland an intriguing destination.
I was traveling to Iceland in autumn, right after my birthday, for seven days. Holidays are the presents you can make to yourself and this one was just perfect. My best travel companion was up for a new adventure when she sent me the offer for this trip and asked twice maybe three or four times. How could I have resisted it?
Play some Sigur Rós in the background and get in the mood for Icelandic sounds. You can add some videos for the perfect experience, as they`ve promoted the country on certain cases. Heima (EN: At home) is a documentary about the band’s tour around Iceland in the summer of 2006. Gusgus, Bjórk, or Monsters and Men may work also.
