Iceland, driving along the south coast road.

A video from www.theholidaydirectory.co.uk Hardly any cars on the road even at peak holiday time in June makes driving in Iceland a dream. This video shows some of the scenery along the main coast road so sit back and enjoy the ride. Instead of just showing clips of the main attractions we like our videos to show what the real Iceland is like. The traffic has not been edited out of these video clips, what you see is what the roads are like.

“Golden Circle Tour – My Iceland adventure” Tiresidedown’s photos around Reykjavík, Iceland

A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Reykjavík, Iceland by TravelPod blogger Tiresidedown titled “Golden Circle Tour – My Iceland adventure”. TravelPod is a company of TripAdvisor™. Tiresidedown’s travel blog entry: “A few months ago, I took a trip to Iceland with my business partner. Though he used to live there and has traveled to Reykjavik many times, the trip was my first. Indeed, it was my first international flight at all. Getting to Reykjavik from San Diego was a rather long trip in two parts. I generally have patience for flying and the second leg of the trip there was on IcelandAir with handy tv screens for in-flight movies. So, about thirty minutes of iPod audio book, all the magazines in sight, two trips through Skymall, about an hour of fitful half-sleep, a few meals and a few movies, and bam! it’s like you just show up. After we arrived, the time change was an adjustment. It helps if you’re an early sleeper like my friend Dave – I however am more of a night owl and the transition took a few days. The days are still useful days though, and the jet lag is just a by-product of going a significant way around the world. To keep this entry from being my full trip; I’ll skip to the chase! We were downtown and saw the Iceland Travel Market; these guys were great and helped me figure out the best trip for the time, money and interests we had. We packed in three things and did the famous Golden Circle tour. Link to Golden Circle Tour here. Though there
