Baby It’s Cold Outside – South Iceland

Taking the bus through south Iceland We have to say: Iceland is made for traveling by car. Taking the bus is possible, but it’s complicated and you need more time.

When we first arrived we had just a vague idea what this country could be like – mostly we associated big resorts, beaches and palm trees with it.

And she was right. We found a different world as soon as we…
