Our Plan: Road tripping Iceland.

Lauren and I recently went on a road trip through Bali and we really enjoyed it so I can’t think of a better way to explore Iceland than to find a car rental place and just take our time going from one Icelandic town to the next over the course of a few weeks.

I’m not sure how keen Laur is on the cold, but after two years in Malaysia a little bit of cold is sounding pretty good to me.

Have you or has anyone you know been on an Icelandic road trip? We’d love to get some more ideas of where to go, what some of the “must do’s /see’s” are.
