UP, DOWN & THROUGH ICELAND, PART 1
This is Lydia’s first time living in Iceland and Jonas’ second time. They’ve both lived here for almost a year now and are both married to Icelanders so they’ve visited often and have travelled up, down and through Iceland. They have recommendations, do’s and don’ts and tales of adventure to share. These are their stories. Insert Law & Order sound here. We had so much to say we had to split it into two parts (episodes 2 and 3). And then we still weren't done, so we served up a hot plate of bonus episode on our tips and recs for the ring road.

for fams with kids
- Interactive map of pools all over Iceland - public pools, hot pots and a few natural pools
- Húsdýragarðurinn Reykjavík "Zoo" - Let's not be hasty about calling this a zoo (hence the quotation marks). Keep your expectations low and you might be pleasantly surprised.

for nature lovers
- Vatnshellir lava cave on Snæfellsnes - not crazy expensive, pretty quick, natural lava cave and good guides
- Into the Glacier Langjökull ice cave tour near Húsafell - way more expensive than Vatnshellir, but totally different and amazing, manmade ice cave
- Lots more info for nature lovers and tips and recs for arty-farty, tooty-fruity visitors in the second half of this edition (episode 3) PLUS a whole bonus episode dedicated entirely to the ring road!
