Iceland blogs for me

Iceland is one of those places I've never been but really, really want to, in an inexplicable way. One of my German students took a trip there and his photos put it even higher on my must-go list. But more recently when I was looking at European budget airlines for Jaunted I wrote a post on Iceland Express which made me even more Iceland-crazy.

You see, Iceland Express does something that I think is very cool. It keeps a blog that not only does a bit of promotion and advertising but is also funny and interesting enough that I keep returning. How Do You Like Iceland is the blog, with highlights like "How to Vacation Like an Icelandic Wage Slave" and "How to Get a Date with an Icelander". And another important fact about Iceland? Its people love celebration. Apparently:
Iceland is the kind of place where people throw a party because they find soap that matches their towels.
There aren't too many blogs that get a spot on my regular rounds and this is definitely the first commercial one, but I heartily recommend it.


  1. Hey! Really nice and cool blog. There is another Icelandic website you should check out: It's a flight search engine that finds great prices and all the possible connections.

  2. Love your blog!

    Thanks so much for your Iceland connections. I too am an Australian ~ from the Mornington Peninsula ~ utterly fascinated with Iceland. The worst part is, I really don't have a valid reason why except avid curiosity.


  3. Thanks Gemma! I also have no good excuse for my fascination with Iceland, unless a teenage interest in the Sugar Cubes counts. But in any case there's nothing wrong with a good dose of curiosity, is there? I hope not for my own sake =)


I love to hear from you ...
