ELIAD130719: Iceland Adventure - July 19, 2013

Hello, fellow tour mates! I'm Shawna from Chicago (United States). I'm looking forward to meeting you all in a few months! I randomly chose Iceland this year without doing much research first so if you have any tips, please do share...

Hello Shawna!
My name is Nadine. I'm also seriously considering to book the "Iceland Adventure" tour in July but I'm still checking flight timetables and prices.
Have you done any G Adventures or Discovery Adventures trip before?

Greetings from Luxembourg!

Hi Nadine,

I hope that you were able to book the trip. This is my 4th trip with G Adventures - I've had a great time on all of my adventures (Bali, Turkey and Patagonia). I highly recommend this tour company.

By the way, I lived in Luxembourg back in 1996. Such a wonderful little country :-)

Hello Shawna,

yes, I did book the trip to Iceland and I'm very excited. I will arrive at the airport of Reykjavik on July 19th at 9 a.m. . After our trip I will stay until July 31st before continuing to Norway.

I'm very surprised that you have lived in Luxembourg. May be you have studied at Miami University here?

Looking forward to our trip! :)

Nadine

Hello Shawna and Nadine,

I am going on the same trip with two friends, Shelley and Ellen. We are from California. I love GAP trips, I went on two trips to Africa, one Galapagos, and Patagonia, they have all been amazing. Shawna, sounds like you have had good experiences with them as well. Shelley and I are continuing on to Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. We look forward to meeting up with everyone on the 19th, can't wait!!!

Meredith, Shelley, Ellen :)

Hello, Meredith, Shelley and Ellen! Looking forward to meeting you ladies soon! I'll be arriving at 9:30am on the 19th, leaving the morning of the 31st - but back to the U.S. Meredith, did you do the End of the Earth tour in Patagonia? I did that one last year with G and loved it!

Nadine, yes, you're right! I was studying at Miami University and living with a host family in Luxembourg. What great memories!

Yes I did The End of the World Patagonia not last Christmas, but the Christmas before. I'm a teacher so that was my time off. It was amazing. Can't wait to hear about your experience. Counting the days down to Iceland!!!!

I see Meredith has already posted on here! Can't wait for this trip, my first with GAdventures. I've been around Europe with friends but Iceland will be something so different from anywhere I have ever been. Look forward to meeting everyone, and of course seeing my friend Meredith for the first time in 18 years, and Shelley for the first time in person!
