 Iceland Vacation Travel Guide
Reykjavik is relaxed and welcoming, yet possesses a cultural life that holds its own against other European capitals. Most buildings are built simple and low to beat the North Atlantic winds. However, the city is also graced with grand civic architecture inspired by Iceland’s natural beauty, such as the soaring central tower of Hallgrímskirkja.

Then spend a day or two in The Golden Circle, an area which encompasses three of Iceland’s greatest natural wonders; Thingvellir National Park, the Geysir Geothermal Field, and Gullfoss.

Iceland’s main ring road strings together an endless series of epic landscapes. Less th…

Iceland is a mountainous island nation in the north Atlantic Ocean, located between Europe and North America. Though not part of the continental mainland, the country is considered Nordic European. The name of the country—Iceland—may not be that appropriate: although 10% of Iceland is covered by glaciers, it has a surprisingly mild climate and countless geothermal hot-spots. The native spelling ("Ísland") is appropriate in English as well.

Stephen Colbert talk about Iceland's Win In The Euro Cup Tournament

In more "bad things happening to England" news, their soccer team was defeated by Iceland in the Euro Cup tournament. Also, we called it "soccer" instead of football.

Soccer is the correct term. Football is a collective term for ball games played with the foot. There are a lot of reasons why we say football in the UK, but it does actually make more sense to say soccer.


for those not familiar with international soccer, Iceland defeating England is like a high school football team defeating the Denver Broncos
