    Hi Kiersten, I just want to know how much did the gas cost you for the whole trip?

      Hey Arun! I don’t quite remember the figures as I was splitting with my travel companions. HOWEVER, this itinerary lays out the approximate mileage per day –
      And when I went, fuel prices were around 200 ISK per liter which is about $7.50 per gallon (you’ll want to check if this has changed at all). I hope that helps! 🙂

    We are in our late sixties. Do many older couple camp in the van? I like the idea of not moving each day to another hotel. Too hard on us. Or would you recommend just side trips from the capital?
    We are not hikers but swimmers.

      Hi there! I’ve seen people from all walks of life camp in the vans — it’s really up to you and your comfort level though. I think you’ll get a lot more if you’re able to drive and camp around the island since some of the stretches are quite long, but if you’re unsure you could do side trips from the capital.


Cabo is always a good idea 🇲🇽

🚨 Now sharing all of my favorite hotels in one spot! 🚨
I have thousands of articles on my travel blog, which is great, but can understandably feel overwhelming if you’re looking for something specific like hotel recommendations.

Which is why I’m super excited to let you know that I created a Travel Shop on the Expedia App where I’ll be sharing curated Collections from my travels to over 75 countries, with my favorite hotel stays, my own bucket list hotels, and getaway recommendations like “the best hotels for a girlfriend getaway”.

It’s so easy to navigate — you can book directly from the Expedia App or save to your profile for a future trip.

I’m working on adding Collections for everywhere I’ve traveled, so be sure to bookmark my Expedia Travel Shop so you can easily reference all of my hotel recommendations in one place.

I’m so excited to share that @the_baby_abroad family travel blog is now live! 👶🏼✈️
I’ll be sharing countless articles addressing the most common travel questions I got throughout my pregnancy, Oliver’s early travels, and now that he’s a BUSY toddler.

Of course, I’ll also be sharing all of my tips for flying with a little one, airline reviews (with kids in mind), comprehensive travel guides on the destinations we’ve traveled as a family, honest product reviews, and everything in between.

But what I’m most excited about is that this will be a community resource with tons of guest authors. Raising a child is such a unique experience for every family, and I personally love to see how ALL types of families travel.

My hope is that The Baby Abroad will become a resource that represents all types of families exploring the world with their kids at every stage of life.
I couldn’t be more excited about this new adventure, and I hope you’ll follow along @the_baby_abroad! #thebabyabroad
