It's amazing what a bargain Iceland is right now, especially in the off season. The krona is worth half of what it was when my guidebook was published, so you basically get Iceland half price of what it normally is! ($25 hostel bed instead of $50) When I arrived I was surprised the airport brought up their current situation...
