I have always been drawn to the culture, unspoiled beauty, and varied landscape of Iceland - and definitely, this is a destination that I recommend one take their time visiting. I recently traveled to Iceland for a 4-night solo adventure. I stayed in Reykjavik and used that as my home base for exploring the country. As an independent female traveler, I felt very safe when venturing out at any hour, day or night. I was able to connect with locals, enjoyed guided tours and the opportunity to explore on my own. Everyone was warm and welcoming. Iceland is at the top of adventure travel bucket lists, for good reason: Hiking trails, geothermal springs and other unique worldly landscapes are plentiful. I had the great fortune to see Pingvellir National Park, the Gulfoss waterfall, Skogafoss waterfall and the Frioheimar greenhouse - first- hand. The cherry on the top of my fabulous vacation was a dip in the famous Blue Lagoon geothermal spa. Definitely a "must do"!

To say that my two favorite destinations are far apart geographically and certainly "a world apart" in all that these two exciting and compelling destinations have to offer...is truly an understatement. But once you know what makes each destination so special and enticing... there's no doubt you'll be heading way up north and way "down under" to learn all about Iceland and Australia.
