Iceland Air has an interesting setup where you can book a flight from one city to another and include an extended stopover in Iceland in between (anywhere up to 10 days I think). Way cheaper than buying two separate plane tickets. Stayed in Iceland for 5 days on that setup.

Don't let the winter discourage anybody from going to Iceland either. I went in January and still had a great time.

Will second what SuperUberBob said. Have done the same thing myself with the layover and Iceland is one the most unique landscapes I've seen. Just be prepared to pay $10/gallon for gas and $15-20 a beer.

I did a similar thing with Sri Lanka's main airline when flying from Kuala Lumpa to London via Colombo.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Iceland tourism or whatever it’s called subsidize flights. I don’t know if it’s still available but there was deal where you got super cheap Europe flights if you had a day plus layover in Iceland.

Scenery and “the scenery” are both said to be spectacular and “spectacular”.

There is literally nothing Trump could say at CPAC that could possibly surprise me, other than some variation of “I was wrong about...”

I feel this suicide attempt has to be true. I feel the response by the US would have been much different if he was abused/ tortured etc.

Also after reading that article...... that kid had the life and blew it from one extremely stupid decision. Rich, smart, hot gf..... what an airhead trying to steal a poster in NK. Ugh what a terrible decision by someone that should be competent enough to understand how one should be careful in NK.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

AOCs performance at the Cohen hearing cements her as substance and not just style. She really is becoming one of the most productive members of Congress in years for the left. Few people understand, and frankly, do the job as well as she does.

One wonders what the odds are you would need to bet she become POTUS one day?

They are by far the poorest country too, but the people seem very proud of not resorting to thievery. I went in after the first flare-up had died down and everyone was saying it was fine for tourists again - but of course I knew there was a risk that things got crazy again while I was there.

No one has guns except the police and the Sandinista Youth - who were acting as sort of the dirty jobs/thug wing - pulling agent provocateur stuff and random violence. Apparently you get free college for being in the Sandanista Youth. The biggest weapons the opposition has are some homemade things that seem like an M-80 on a beefed up bottle rocket - which admittedly would suck if it went off in your face but would do nothing to my car.

All the protesters I saw were a mix of farmers and students. They actually asked if I was a Contra at one point. A big theme I heard from locals was hoping the US would get involved again. So they were pretty nice to Americans overall. Their primary concern seemed to be checking to make sure I wasn't smuggling any people out in my rooftop carrier. Maybe someone they were looking for. They didn't search anything too small to fit a person.

Not that I always felt 100% safe. I spent one night at an illegal roadblock and got a lot of stares. Something told me being a gringo in a fancy car for days in a completely lawless situation like that might not be the best idea. Also it was hot and I couldn't idle with the AC on forever. So I drove a few hours back to a hotel in Bluefields on the east coast that became my little haven for a week.

When I finally got through the 4 roadblocks it was tense but at no time did I feel in real danger or that they would steal anything. My biggest fear is they wouldn't let me through. I had beer, water, vodka, soda, extra gasoline and money to offer as potential bribes. But no one ever asked for one. So once they would let me through I'd get out and hand out a bunch of ice cold beer - which was a huge hit and sent out a giant roar throughout the road block.



Finally by the third roadblock, after giving out the beer, I got the nerve to ask for a picture. The farmers didn't seem to mind their picture taken at all. The students always had bandanas covering their faces. The white dude is one of two backpackers I picked up along the way who were stranded in between roadblocks. They connected with me that morning through the Pan-Am traveller's group on FB. There were definitely surprised to see me show up at their hostel. They managed to get packed in about 5 minutes.
Spending your day stuck in a lawless roadblock is a really cool vacation.

The screenshot for Trumps tweet video conveys imminent heart attack in a single frame.

Truly amazing.

We may never know the true story. Perhaps some guard acted against orders and beat and tortured him anyway.
Read the article. No evidence of physical torture. Read between the lines and they sort of imply asphyxiation.
