Trip 12 - Iceland

10-23 May 2009

I'd wanted to see Iceland's varied terrain for a long time, and it had been prohibitively expensive until a dramatic change in the exchange rate made the country more affordable. I took advantage of off-peak discounts to get in just before the tourist season hit, enabling me to enjoy some peaceful solitude and long daylight hours.
