Is Iceland on your bucket list? Great, in my humble opinion this quirky and beautiful island should be a must see for would be globetrotters! Having said that here are a few tips to consider while planning your sojourn to Iceland.
During my research for this trip I kept reading comments that the food and drinks in Iceland are EXPENSIVE. At first I admit it went in one ear and out the other but then common sense, better judgement and probably a greedy stomach kicked in. My food and drink plan consisted of packing snacks, plastic mini bottles of wine, packets of hot chocolate and when we arrived hitting the grocery store for things to have for breakfast. I also researched and compiled a list of restaurants ahead of time to pick from that were pocket book friendly. By doing this I was able to enjoy a guilt free splurge on a 2 course meal at the Lava restaurant located inside of the Blue Lagoon.
You have decided the sites you want to see but now you need to decide whether to book a tour or rent a car and hit the road yourself. For me this was pretty much a no brainer because I didn't want the added stress of driving in a foreign country on snow covered roads. But that's just me - you will have to determine which mode of transportation works for you.
