When Dave and I planned our 2 year backpacking trip Iceland was never on the list. It didn’t seem to be close to mainland Europe or Asia and with plenty of countries to see on those two continents it was never even a consideration.
Until of course I was looking into booking our flights home from Italy and it looks like Iceland Air was the cheapest airline to go with. The layover seem to be almost a full day, so I thought, why not see if we can stretch that a few days?
A few days turned into seven. Iceland Air offers up to weeklong layover for no additional cost. Awesome right?
Well that is until you get there and realize it is one of the most expensive places on earth. Seriously. I thought Switzerland was bad. Iceland put those prices to shame.
