I bought this as I was going to Iceland and thought from the previous review it might tell me something about the country and the people which might be omitted from the guidebooks.

The title is a misnomer because she ventures no further than the environs of Reykjavik. Much of the first part recounts her experiences on the flight, which I suppose might have been quite funny had she been Bill Bryson.

We did discover that Icelandic tour coach drivers are much more considerate than any I have come across in this country (UK), because hers came and knocked on her bedroom door in order to wake her, then went off to pick up another tourist to give her time to dress. She blames her oversleeping on the guest house failing to call her. Maybe we are strange but we always have at least 3 devices to act as alarms as well as asking for a wake up call, because as she found it does not always come.

She does not seem to be particularly impressed by the countryside she saw, prefering to spend time in the museums and complaining of the little time that the schedule had left to see all the artifacts. She does comment that the countryside was green and kept drawing analogies to "How Green Was My Valley" even putting in a web link to the film for our edification. This comparison to a book about a Welsh mining district in the 19th century, where the title is used whimsically, rather than literally, might be appropriate after the eruptions!

The peppering of the text with web links might be useful if they were appropriate, but tended to be along the lines of "I met a couple from Canada" then gave where they were from with a link to that town! What has that to do with exploring Iceland?

I had expected a book about a complete tour of Iceland and got a long weekend in Reykjavik. I'm just glad I was not on her tour.

This was like reading someone's personal diary. More about herself than the place. It was not helpful in the least.
