Who's Been to Iceland?
Thinking about a short getaway to Rekyavik. I know KEF airport is a long trip to the city. Looking at some really cool apts in town. Any info you can share would be appreciated. We'll probably go Mon-Fri since we're on standby travel. I saw some prices for accommodations and they can be $$$. We just want to wander the city for a day, hang at one of the hot spring lakes, see some geysers and get a feel for Iceland. I'm thinking my husband wants to see the "most beautiful women in the world again (as he wisely says--"besides you") but he hasn't been there for many years.
Maybe LL can contract some properties off- season."wherever you go, there you are"

Thanks, Innocent. (BTW--we had a chef in South Africa whose name was Innocent!) I looked at several apt options. I'll check out yours, for sure. I don't even know if we're going--it will be last minute. I also have Airbnb. Appreciate the links!"wherever you go, there you are"

What a marvelous idea. The Rijksmuseum museum in Holland had an idea: Let's bring the art to the people and then, hopefully, they will come to see more - at the museum.
They took one Rembrandt painting from 1642 , Guards of the Night and brought to life the characters in it, placed them in a busy mall and the rest you can see for yourself!

I can't get it to play continuously. Maybe I'll try later. They did similar thing on Amazing Race--reconstructing the Night Watch painting using live characters--very cool. I hope i can watch this all the way thru. This looks like much more fun!
