The local currency in Iceland is the króna, kr or ISK. Similar to all Scandinavian countries which utilize a version of the krone. Króna translates to crown, a nod to declaring autonomy in 1885 by printing their own banknotes, and ultimately gaining independence from Denmark in 1918.  Iceland is no stranger to the trouble with its currency. From its long...

We took our first, and our last for 14 years, cruise during our Honeymoon to the Mexican Riviera on Carnival Cruise Lines. We didn’t experience the poop overflow from the septic system that filled the halls, nor did a family go ballistic on our cruise beating each other to a bloody pulp, but it was miserable nonetheless. Our travel...

We started this tradition in Iceland, specifically, because we celebrated Christmas here and it is an Icelandic tradition to give or get a new book on Christmas Eve and spend the night reading it. This practice is called jólabókaflóð. We absolutely...

Though we didn’t particularly enjoy our stay at the Icelandair Reykjavik Natura Hotel, we did love the classic and festive Icelandic Christmas dinner spread offered Christmas Day. Considering everything else in the city was closed, we didn’t have many options for sustenance, so we were fortunate to be staying someplace where the food was exceptional. ► Ranking: #cleandiaper Icelandair Reykjavik...

When we traveled to Iceland, during the middle of December and the dark of winter, we had to pick our activities deliberately. With approximately four hours of daylight we couldn’t see everything, it just wasn’t mathematically or cosmically possible. The Golden Circle is 300 kilometers of Iceland’s most popular sites and attractions, including incredible sites that you can’t find...

We found ourselves in Kirkenes after debarking from our two night cruise on the Hurtigruten. Kirkenes is a tiny little town of only 3,000 inhabitants on just over 500 acres, and was upgraded from a village just 20 years ago! The peninsula is sandwiched between the Bøkfjorden fjord, and the Varangerfjord fjord that borders Russia, and the city is...
