2016 Bucket List Trip – Check Out Reykjavik, Iceland

Reykjavik, Iceland is My Next Trip

Reykjavik is the center of culture and life for the Icelandic people and is a “Must Do’ for any traveler’s bucket list. The city is an Outstanding location for solo women, men, couples, and travelers 50+ to visit. Iceland is my birthday location this year.

What You Should Do: Absolutely make sure you explore the city’s natural wonders. The Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa, has warm waters rich in minerals. For more spectacular sites, go whale watching, and you could possibly spot some dolphins or seals too. And, of course, the waterfront strolls and walkways are perfect for a relaxing morning or afternoon walk to gather your thoughts. Here is what I used to pack for the trip.

Cost: Reykjavik is famously expensive, although it’s gotten a bit better since the 2008 currency crisis. Alcohol is especially pricey, but the experience is priceless.

But of course, if you’re looking to keep costs low, public transportation is by far the best option. This is simple travel, it looks like a blast from the past yet offers the ultimate in beautiful locations for the photographer.

Potential Concerns: Considered one place still natural always take safety precautions because it never hurts to be overly cautious.
