Iceland is Country 53 to visit this blog. Welcome! I'm enthralled by your presence. I'd wanted to visit since I learned about Iceland in fifth grade; and in February, 2000, I did so with my friend Amelia. Recently the economy has been somersaulting; best wishes for a sound economic recovery. Iceland remains my all-time favorite country to visit; I want to go back; and I've promised one of my grandsons to take him there one of these first days.
