Where to go: Iceland

From Flickr (Diamanx)

Iceland has a reputation as a beautiful place to travel and one that’s not overwhelmed by flocks of tourists in part because it’s also an expensive place to travel. Recently, Iceland has been hit hard by the economic global troubles (Matador Travel). Since the beginning of 2008, the Icelandic currency has lost close to 40% of its value vs. the Euro. The Associated Press reports that Iceland is “teetering on the brink of bankrupcy” (and you thought the U.S. troubles were bad). So if you’re not caught in mortage troubles of your own, it sounds like now might be a great time to head off to Iceland.

Iceland is a stunningly beautiful country, with friendly fun people, and Reykjavik has a reknowned nightlight.  Check out the video below on a Iceland roadtrip from Current.com.
