When one of our staffers husband had a business trip to Iceland (and a
penchant for Uma Thurman), she did what any smart girl would do and
tagged along. Herewith, the tour of Reykjavik.
You may as well break open the piggy bank, cash in the RRSPs and ask the
boss for a raise as Iceland is anything but cheap. And since chances are
it will be a once-in-a lifetime trip, do as we did and go all out with a
stay at the gorgeous Hotel
101. We loved the balcony suites with perfect views of the bluer
than blue sky and the most comfortable beds weve ever slept in.
Iceland isnt exactly a foodie haven but the seafood is plentiful and
fresh. Visit renowned local chef Siggi Halls quaint, residential
restaurant and order the catch of the day.
Blonde, lanky Icelandic store clerks will guide you through the racks of
Alexander McQueen, Preen and See by Chloe plus emerging Icelandic
fashion designers at Trilogia.
Prices are random so scour the racks for the best finds in this hipster

Soak away your worries (and flashes of your dwindling bank account!) in
the soothing salt waters of Icelands most famous geothermal pool, The
Blue Lagoon. Stop in the gift shop and snag a few of their famous
products to recreate your own home spa. http://www.bluelagoon.com/
