Going In July!So, fiancee says she picked something out of Redbook suggesting a "surprise vacation" -- let you sig other organize it for you, pack and be ready to go.
In July? Scratch the Caribbean, too hot and crowded. Scratch Costa Rica as well, has to be north. What's happening in northern Europe at the end of July -- wow, a national festival in a country with volcanoes, whales, waterfalls, and lagoons! Verslunarmannahelgi it is, then.
Convenient air travel from the USA looks best out of New York City. Solution: Train to NYC.
Transportation: needs research, drive or bus?
Tours: needs research, not sure if I should try to schedule before arrival
Parties: looks like every street corner
Lagoons: skip Blue Lagoon, get a local recommendation
Whales: iffy, wrong season
Language: hokay, back to the books...
Oh, fiancee has been asking for hints -- so I told her to expect plenty of sunshine, bring a bathing suit, heels, high ankle hiking boots, and her ski jacket.
Any suggestions from those who have been, appreciated!
