Beautiful, beautiful country. I cannot wait to go back.
We had a *fantastic* time in Iceland - so much so that halfway through the trip, my husband and I were "jokingly" wondering aloud what jobs we could get in Iceland so we could stay.
Accessible via a short, five-hour flight from the east coast of the United States, Iceland is a lot closer than you might imagine
