Iceland is all the rage these days. Thanks to a great marketing campaign (“FREE LAYOVER”!), TV shows like “Game of Thrones” and cheap airfares, the tiny Scandinavian island is on everyone’s travel list – as it should be. It’s stunningly beautiful with landscapes seen nowhere else on earth, the people are fascinating (they believe in elves!) and the food is fantastic. Even better, for East Coasters, it’s closer than Los Angeles.
