Why Iceland? by Christophe Jammet
If you’ve met or spoken to me in the last two years you quickly learn a few things about me. Aside from the glaringly obvious (short, bald, the presence of bacon in my mouth), one thing that ends up sticking out is my enthusiastic obsession with Iceland. This is usually met with one of two reactions: Those who have been to Iceland get just as excited as me and we furiously back-and-forth stories and lists of the amazing things, places, and people we saw from our time spent there...
Miss Wanderlust takes Reykjavik, Iceland!
As soon as I arrived in Reykjavik 101, I felt like I was in a familiar place. I had been dreaming about visiting Iceland for such a long time that it’s sights and even it’s vibe were already imprinted on my minds’ eye. The bus ride from the airport into town was mildly surreal, driving through lava fields on an overcast morning, but nowhere near as surreal as the days and the scenes that were to come.

Tiny Iceland—A year filled with memories
Today we celebrate Tiny Iceland’s 2nd birthday! Tiny Iceland was an idea first, which lead to a Twitter account on April 7th 2012 and after that evolved into a website. For the past two years we have promoted Iceland using all kinds of stories, photos, videos, articles, trips, travelers and more. So the accomplishment is big and I just want to say TAKK // thank you for being part of this community. This is not my diary of last year but more a recap of the highlights. Enjoy and hope to see you in Iceland one day. Cheers, Inga
Double destinations with Icelandair’s STOPOVER program!
When I discovered that one of my best friends flew from France to Canada recently without stopping by to visit me in Iceland, I was (like his other friends here in Reykjavik), well and truly miffed! Turns out though, despite the fact that he’d lived here previously, he didn’t know about Icelandair’s rather nifty STOPOVER program, which allows people travelling on flights between Europe and the USA and vise-versa, to stopover in Iceland without the expense of additional airfares.
