Driving the Icelandic Ring Road
This year I wanted to take a trip where most people don’t go for their first solo-trip. Before leaving, many people asked: why Iceland? Well, to put it simply: it’s just different than most countries. Not only is the country gorgeous throughout the Golden Circle but it has many features that satisfy my geeky personality like fast 3G data in practically the entire country. The result of having such a connected society results in things like a cashless society, which I really appreciated. I didn’t need cash once, I was skeptical initially and my parents thought the idea of not taking any cash was hugely irresponsible. My American Express Starwood Preferred Guest was accepted everywhere, with a few exceptions. Here are my 14 days in Iceland.
