Iceland - the land of ice and fire - is an incredibly beautiful country and has been steadily gaining popularity over the past few years (no doubt helped a fair amount by its use as a location for filming in Game of Thrones).With thundering waterfalls, scenic national parks and magical geothermal spas, Iceland is a not-to-be-missed destination and with IcelandAir and WowAir opening up new routes and providing amazing stopover opportunities, the small Nordic island is now easier (and cheaper) to visit - even if you only get 48 hours in Iceland!

I travelled through Budapest when I interrailed around Europe two years ago and really enjoyed the city. From my current home in La Ceiba, Honduras, I'll be giving advice on how to do Budapest on a budget!
