Curly fries and a Cobbette of corn served with a pat of butter and black lava salt, it was a great meal. All of this , including the slab of bread, served on a wood carving board.

If truth be told, there were few sights to see in the city itself, of course the appeal of Iceland is in the natural wonders that it boasts. The Golden Circle tour is probably the best known tour of these sights, and although we ...
