In 2005, I had a few unused vacation days that I would lose if I didn't use them--so I used them. I added a couple of days to a weekend and went to Iceland. Because the trip was so short, I was able to do only a few day trips out of Reykjavik. But those trips offered enough of a sampling of the country--sometimes stark, sometimes rustic, always beautiful--for me to know that I need to get back there.
