Mosh’s going to Iceland

Oops. I just booked a one-way flight to Reykjavik, Iceland on January 4th. As you do.

Well, with their economy going up the fritz (the Icelandic Krona dropped to about half it’s value against the pound last week) and almost everyone I know who’s been there declaring it a wonderful place it made sense to take advantage. Especially with it formerly being one of the most expensive places to visit.

The flight was a bargain £77 from Glasgow (direct), the hostel I’m looking at is a fiver a night and I can get a cheap flight to Copenhagen from there for the weekend before returning to Chamonix at company expense to do another couple of weeks’ paid graft before I zip off to Bangkok for another eye operation.

I think the best plan will be to book as much as I can in advance. The Krona will do nothing but (I hope, for Iceland’s sake) recover between now and January, so paying now will save me money in the long run.
