I’m back in the states after ten days of being in Iceland and Denmark and doing my best to keep the jet lag monster at bay with copious amounts of coffee. This trip was amazing, life-changing even, and I’m happy and proud to have been able to do it on my own. It’s always a great feeling to come home from a trip that met and exceeded all of your expectations.
Though there were some bumps in the road (oh hi spending $40 on bus passes I gave away at the end of the trip and drunk man who tried to grab me on the street in Reykjavik!), I had a wonderful time in both countries and wouldn’t trade my experiences for anything.
In my packing list and budget, I promised a trip recap on both accounts. As for the packing list, I wore everything I packed at least once (mostly more than once) . The Packing MVP award goes to the Shout Stain Remover Wipes for saving me from a coffee spill disaster and my Mophie mobile phone battery! I could have done without the towel I brought, everywhere I would have needed it provided towels for me.
As far as the budget is concerned, I under spent by about $200, which was far better than I was expecting! Both countries are very expensive, Iceland more so than Denmark. To compensate for this, I didn’t drink much in Iceland, and when I did, I took advantage of the many Happy Hours there. The Copenhagen Card that I prepaid for got me into many of the museums and attractions there, so that helped me stay in my budget too. I didn’t buy many souvenirs, only a couple of things for my family and Mike.
I’ll be posting more about both of these amazing destinations in the very near future, but until then, here are a few of my favorite photos from this trip:
Stay tuned for more details and photos from Iceland and Copenhagen!
