"Traveling without plans can be intimidating. We want to strategize and plan to ensure we won’t miss out on everything on our “bucket list.”  But once the anxiety of getting to a destination is removed, it becomes an opportunity to slow down and enjoy. Implementing moments of “laid-back-ness” not only helped in appreciating a different side of Iceland, but it also allowed us to overcome some of the inevitable hiccups in the itinerary."
