Iceland, Finally

Iceland, Finally

Name a country that A) you hear there are cheap flights to, B) you hear is really freaking awesome, and C) you bet you know at least one person who has been there. Are you thinking Iceland? Because I’m thinking Iceland. I'd say that Iceland is having a moment, but Iceland’s moment is so long, it is having an hour at least.

Which Walking Tour is Best?

Walking tours are a great way to see a city, whether you’re there for a short amount of time or forever. Not everybody loves taking a walking tour - I think it’s too close to the word “tourist” for a lot of people. But how better to get oriented to a city in a relatively short amount of time? But what kind of city tour was my jam - which walking tour would I recommend to my best friend?

Whether your family is using it as their big get together for the year (hey, me too!) or you found an incredibly cheap last minute deal (um…go you!), you are going to have a fabulous vacation.
