Has anyone been to Iceland? I’m spending a few days in Reykjavik soon and don’t have any plans yet.

I’m in France at the moment (leaving on Thursday) and I can’t recommend Lyon highly enough for somebody who wants to know some ‘real’ France. It’s about an hour and a half on the TGV from Paris but it’s really worth going to. Geneva is also a must see on any Eurotrip.
As far as the UK is concerned, I would say that if you’re only spending a week in Britain, stay south and don’t bother any further north than Oxford and if you have the time visit Scotland and stop off at the beautiful York on route.
Bath, Bristol, Oxford, London are Cornwall are all beautiful places with lots to offer tourists.
This reminds me I ought to re-run a Q+A SuperPass class I did a month or two ago called ‘How to be an awesome tourist in Britain’. Would anyone be interested in me re-running it in the future?

I think North Wales, especially Snowdonia, is very beautiful in a wild sort of way, though you have to like rain and sheep to appreciate it. It is rather a long way north of Oxford, but not as far North as Scotland and it has less midges than Scotland too.
London is wonderful if you like cultural things – I love the British Museum and the Globe theatre – the Science and Natural History Museums are good too if you like that sort of thing. There are lots of great shows to see and wonderful places to eat. You could go and look at Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London and St Pauls too ….. the people on the streets and on the tube are not terribly friendly though, thay always seem to be in a great hurry – except perhaps the tourists….

Hi Shipra and everyone,
If landing in Europe visiting Italy is a must, the city of Rome in particular.
However, every single part of Italy is worth a visit as this magnificent country produced the richest artistic and cultural patrimony in the world and is like a whole continent in itself for its a variety.
Also, the Italians are known for being very nice and friendly and … nobody will seem in a hurry if proposed to engage an interesting conversation;-)
