You know the old saying, work hard play even harder? If the saying is true, then I am due many more vacations like my recent trip to Iceland. It all started with planning a week long trip to London, I was so excited to get back to the land of serious breakfast and cider! Pub pies, theater and oh all of that incredible stylish shopping. London is packed with beauty brands I adore and fill my suitcase with every time I cross the pond. Wanting to make sure I kept all of my airline miles within the Alaska Airlines family I booked my trip to London on Iceland Air and took advantage of their "stopover deal" So on the way home from one of the best weeks I have ever had in London I stopped over in Iceland. In a few words, Iceland is a beautiful island of natural wonder, viking pride and is shockingly expensive!
OK!! Here is the really 'spendy' part of going to Iceland, it is eating out! keep in mind I have been to JAPAN!! Iceland is by far the most expensive place I have ever traveled to in regards to restaurants, no joke but the food is some of the best I have ever had. Our first night in Reykjavik we wanted something simple, not fancy and opted for a burger place with great reviews... two burgers and beers later left us paying $80 and guys they were good burgers but we did have a little sticker shock. This would be my one good heads up for visiting Iceland, be prepared to either be more creative with your dining choices or just dive in and pay- we chose to dive in and it was a delicious but expensive experience
