Toronto, ON Airport: YYZ
So this is going to be my first stop around the world. I am doing extensive research in what to do, weather conditions, prices and currency, places to stay, and how to get around.
Since I’m going in the winter, most tourist attractions will be closed due to high-season not starting until July. Fortunately the things I want to do will still be available.
While I’m in Iceland I only want to accomplish a few things including hiking a glacier, seeing the northern lights, touring the Golden Circle, and going to the Blue Lagoon. Since it is only one small stop on my trip, I don’t want to spend a lot of money here. I want to save for the countries with a higher cost of living. I’ll be taking public transit when getting around Reykjavik but I might rent a car for a day or go places with tours depending on what’s cheaper.
I don’t know anyone from Iceland so I’ll be using CouchSurfing to find someone I can stay with or I will be staying at a hostel. Once I make money and plan what’s coming next I’ll post my “schedule”. I but schedule in quotations because nothing I’m doing is going to be set in stone. I know things will come up but I will probably have my first few weeks planned just so my family knows what I’m doing and has time to get comfortable with me traveling alone.
If you know anything to do in Iceland let me know! I’m very interested!
