At long last, my husband and I had booked a weekend away without our 2-year-old son. Given that these opportunities are rare, we wanted to experience something totally different, something which we wouldn’t easily be able to do with the little one in tow – so we settled on Iceland.
I have always been a warm-weather person, and to be honest, the idea of visiting an Arctic country sent chills right through me – especially since we were planning to go in March. However, the cold, it would seem, is all part of the adventure. And an adventure it certainly was. Our weekend to Reykjavik also turned out to be one of the most memorable holidays of my life.
