I'm still thinking of comming to this one, tagging it on to a longer trip around Iceland. Just thought I'd mention this again; is anyone else thinking of camping, and are there any camping grounds that are veary near to the airport? I'm thinking this could keep the costs down so that I can make the trip a little longer.

You can camp in Iceland in April, but you have to have a good tent and a good sleeping bag. There are no camping places close to the airport, but *maybe* you can use my garden. Few meters from the runway. However very unlikely.

Well Andy the camping was great fun, and it was also cheap.

Think I might have drawn up a cunning plan; The more money saved on a hotel room means more money for buying alcohol, and the more alcohol I have, the less I will care about what I'm sleeping on.

Can't fault it Wink
