Flying out of Reykjavik, Iceland, in January after a wonderful five day trip, this was the last sight I saw before falling asleep - the inhospitable arctic landscape of Greenland. The third-largest country in North America and the world's largest island, Greenland is home to fewer than 58,000 people, despite its enormous size. The country's towns and villages all are located along the west coast, which is largely free of ice and more habitable.
Iceland in the winter is a sight to behold - I would recommend it to any traveler who likes a bit of adventure. As much as I love summer, it almost makes me wish for winter to come again so I can return. If you're flying out of Reykjavik on your way home, be sure to take a peek at Greenland. While stunning from the air, it's guaranteed to make you glad to live where you do!
