    Iceland in 72hrs

    By Simon Brown My first visit to Iceland was as a 16-year-old schoolboy on an Educational visit for GSE Geography and Geology. That was a long. long time ago!  I recall that summer as one where Iceland experienced a heat wave of 75F, and we camped inland in huts with black-out shutters to block the midnight sun.

If you’re craving a change of scenery, a weekend road trip might be just what you need. Whether you’re heading to the beach or the mountains, Forbes reports that driving has fewer logistics than flying. Sure, it might take a little longer to reach your destination. However, the upside is you won’t have to deal with the stresses of busy airports, unruly strangers, security checks, or expensive flights. Whether you’re on a gap year, taking a family holiday together, or just looking for a fun way to spend your day off,…
