Where to go in Iceland

Recently I cannot get online without seeing incredible pictures of Iceland. From Justin Bieber’s music videos to every travel post on Twitter. It is THE place to go right now. With incredibly cheap flights from WOW air there is no reason not to go. Last year I took a trip with some friends to explore. Since then people have been asking where we went and what we did I thought I would share the details to inspire travel plans. I definitely cannot pronounce most of these places but I can tell you they are worth the trip.
