It was fate because I had been toying with booking flights for our trip to Iceland this autumn and the best I had found so far was $555 and even that was a hacker fare (where the flights to and from would be booked separately to save $100) and I had even signed up for notifications (through Kayak) for any price decreases.
Basically, the sale was only for a handful of european cities. But, the great thing about Icelandair is that you can plan a layover (up to 7 days) in Reykjavik either to or from your destination. So, I gave us 24 hours in Copenhagen and almost 7 days in Iceland. The flights really did end up being $449 for round trip tickets including fees and all that jazz.
Anyway, I'm trying really hard not to get distracted by this trip because I still have a long list of things to tackle for our trip to Greece in August but it's difficult not to get anxious-excited. I'm anticipating this trip so eagerly that I was putting together a Polyvore with sweaters and flannels and I was researching thermals... in the middle of July.
Florida Keys weekend with a day at the spa so I plan on spending our last day in Reykjavik, more specifically at the Blue Lagoon. I've heard it's stupidly touristy and not quite worth the money, but to have glowing skin and refreshment before hopping on a flight and going home is just the ideal way to end a holiday.
