On our quest for cheap tickets from the West coast to Europe we made a discovery thousands of people have made before us. Bankrupt Iceland = cheap airfare. For $390/each we are flying from Seattle to Reykjavik, Iceland -staying a day- then off to Amsterdam. I am unbelievably excited about all this.
It is my idea of a perfect trip to start from home (so we don't torture our poor families like last time having to take us to Vancouver), than go somewhere new I NEVER imagined going (still working on being able to spell Reykjavik w/o double checking), and then ease into familiar Amsterdam. On top of that- the hot springs of Iceland! Whhhhhhhhhhhhhat! (Check out the video below for a touristy, but truly kick-ass looking "Blue Lagoon"). And once we depart Amsterdam we will be meandering our way to Berlin, maybe visiting another city in Netherlands, seeing our friends Leann, Matthijas, & their new baby (the soon to be giant Dutchman) Tymen in Venlo, then off to meet Thomas's family in Cologne and Finally- BERLIN.
I. Can't. Wait.
