      Nature’s wonders are amazing, isn’t it? But it’s a country full of natural beauty. Northern lights alone is enough for me to visit Iceland.

  7. Many years ago, a friend of mine visited Iceland — at the time, you never heard of tourists going there. I’ve been fascinated by Iceland ever since she talked about her trip, but for some reason haven’t made it there yet. Would love to see all that natural beauty.
