One thing that really struck me about Iceland during my January trip there was how incredibly unpopulated the country is and how desolate large parts of it felt. Just over 300,000 people call Iceland home, with about one-third of them living in or around the capital city of Reykjavik. As soon as you get outside Reykjavik, you can literally drive for hours without seeing another person, and houses like this one are few and far between. You definitely need to be a self-sufficient person if you want to make Iceland your home.
While I loved visiting Iceland I don't know that I could live there - I think it might be just a bit too remote for me.
