Iceland photo trip part 1

It’s not easy to pack when going to Iceland in June due to rapid weather changes. So I decided to buy an extra check-in bag on the flight just so I could bring all types of clothes. This is a huge plus not worrying about the 23kg limit of one bag. I paid about $40 for extra baggage space. Now I just have to fit everything in one hard case bag and one duffel bag for our 2 weeks stay.

Here are some tips for planning a photographic trip to Iceland. Google is your friend. You can create your own map with markers for things you’d like to see and add comments. Go to https://www.google.com/maps/ and click on “Create A New Map”. There are a lot of apps both for iPhone and Android that can be useful. Here are some examples.
