I Wish I Was Here: The Blue Lagoon

A few years ago, shortly after the crash of the Icelandic krona, Icelandair was basically giving away flights and hotels.  Having always wanted to visit, I booked without hesitation (or any basic background research).  Once we got there, well, the hotel was on par with my freshman year dormitory and we quickly learned why winter was the slow season for Icelandic travel.  On the plus side, the tourist trap the Blue Lagoon was pretty much abandoned.  I would not exactly be crying if someone sent put me on a direct flight to Iceland and I spent my day paddling around a geothermal spa and getting silica mud treatments.
