  • Technically it's still a ditch, though the day I was there it was raining sideways and my daughter* and I couldn't do more than dash out look around and dash back into the car.

    I'm with wirebird though, where do I sign up? I love Iceland and recommend a stop over there to anybody who's traveling between NA and EU.

    * Here's a fun vacation game, try explaining Plate Tectonics to a 3 year old :)

    • I used to work for an airline that borrowed Aer Lingus planes during the off season to run vacation charters out of the (USAn) East Coast. At the beginning and end of the season, us employees had the chance to ride the placement flights for free. Unfortunately, since I didn't want to (well, I *wanted* to, but you know what I mean) stay in Ireland throughout the charter season, I would still have had to pay for the one-way trip the other direction. As I recall, flying to/from Dublin one-way would have been like $4k. Only going as far as Reykjavik (being 737s, they of course had to stop there) would have been only slightly more accessible.

      Either way, there was the whole "do I really want to be locked up in a 737 with partying upper management for that many hours?" question. I figured I'd be getting off for good at Reykjavik one way or the other...

      Other than all that, it seemed like a really cool opportunity.
