And Icelandair offered a free three-day layover in Reykjavik, Iceland's capital. So en route to Amsterdam (en route to Copenhagen), I spent 72 hours in the Viking nation of Iceland. I didn't know a thing about the country; I didn't know where to stay, I didn't know what language they spoke, and I didn't even really know where it was. Yet I got off the plane, alone, and figured it out. More or less."

As examples, I recommend the photographs of Stöng and Skógafoss .
