    Thank you for the virtual trip to those beautiful landscapes. 🙂
    I would love to know, how to get your stuff to Iceland (since you had like 5 boxes of inventory), like a moving abroad tutorial, with some tips and tricks. Thanks a lot. Looking forward to next weeks vlog! 🙂

    Iceland is so beautiful! The horses are really adorable and furry, though. <3 Is it still hard to get used to being somewhere so different?

    I've enjoyed watching your videos made in Iceland. 🙂
    As a matter of interest, is it true that there are no dogs allowed in Reykjavik?
    If you could mention the meaning of the places' names that you visit that would be of interest. For example I know that Reykjavik means 'smoky bay'.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Regarding what to pack. Could you share what not to pack. Wow airlines charges a lot for bags so it would be good to know what we could buy locally for cheap. Also if someone is there for 10 days should they bring clothes for 10 days or is it easy to find places wash clothes?

    Is it always pitch dark during the winter months? Is it worth to visit during Christmas ?

    I've been told there is a big lake in Reykjavik. Can you bring your own ice skates to skate there?

    Just got back from a week visit in Iceland. The weather was not as cold as Philadelphia. Great people, great hot dogs, thermal pools were awesome. Highly recommend!
