A Blue Footed Booby, Galapagos Islands.

Ever wanted to visit Iceland but are afraid of the costs? Fear not! When I visited I didn't have the money to be splurging, but used these tips to keep my costs low. Now with budget airlines flying to Reykjavik, anyone should be able to enjoy this beautiful country.
