Iceland 101

When we found round-trip tickets to Iceland for a few hundred bucks, we knew we couldn’t pass up the chance to visit one of our must-see destinations.  The only catch was that we’d be visiting Iceland in December, which doesn’t seem to be one of the most popular times of year to visit this unique…

2018 – Year in Review
