Perhaps the most well-known tourist excursion in Iceland is the Golden Circle, a route that takes visitors from Reykjavík to the Haukadalur geysers, the famous Gullfoss or "Golden Falls," and the Þingvellir national park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
For our trip to Iceland, we wanted to get outside Reykjavík and explore the countryside, so we rented a car.
It's a little shocking at first to hear a clerk tell you, "That will be four thousand three hundred ninety-three, please," when you're buying a t-shirt. And then it's shocking all over again when you realize that t-shirt just cost you $44.
We're currently in Iceland, home of black sand beaches, icy glacier lagoons, breathtaking Northern Lights ... and staggering prices.
Join us in a life of adventure, one country at a time.
