Iceland Trip (May 2014) - Informational Meet-Up

If you are interested in the trip to Iceland in May 2014, this is the meet-up for you to attend!

This meet-up is specifically for folks interested in the upcoming Iceland trip who would like to hear more about it. We can chat about all the cool stuff we'll be doing and seeing and all the places we'll visit on this adventure of a lifetime! We'll discuss pricing, logistics, booking process, and answer any and all of your questions! Just a casual get-together at a local bar/restaurant in DC to provide an opportunity to learn more about the Iceland trip and provide info to help demonstrate that you don't want to miss out on this unforgettable, amazing trip!

Hope to see you on Jan 19th at 2pm!

    Hi Iceland group! I'll be going to Iceland a little later in July with the kids, but have a few photos online of some of the places it sounds like you may visit. http://www.oesphoto.com/gallery.php?gid=183
    From the itinerary, it sounds like your trip is going to be totally awesome!

    Sorry I couldn't make it, sinus infection turned into viral infection. :( Next meetup. What website have you tracked for airfare? When I went in October I got round trip from Dulles for $532; however, since it is May I'm guessing it is around $900. FYI, if you fly to Iceland and want to say venture out to another country that Iceland Air flies to like Sweden or so, they do not penalize you. For the Flybus from the airport into town that takes you to your hotel, you can get a great discount while on your flight before you land otherwise it is about $17-19 one way from the airport.

    FYI. When you arrive today, go left & back toward the restrooms (which are upstairs). I have a table reserved for us downstairs in that direction.

    Gail, I will be out of town this weekend. I am interested to receive detail trip information after group discussions on Sunday.

    Hi! I just joined the group & I'm intrigued. I'd like to come, but I'd need to finagle some things in my schedule on Sunday to be there. Price is a factor for me. Do we have a ballpark range? Don't mean to put you on the spot, but if it's too expensive for my budget, I wouldn't need to try to re-schedule things. Thanks!

    Gail, proposed travel dates will work for me. I am very much interested to join. I know nothing about Iceland. However, I love to travel and willing to explore and learn new place.

    Hi, I am very interested in this trip. Do we have a location for this meet-up discussing the Iceland trip? I will need to drop down from Baltimore.

      Hi Elizabeth. Thank you for your interest in the trip... & for joining the Gen X Travel Club! Just added the location - Gordon Biersch. Looking forward to meeting you!

    Looking forward to learning more--Blue Lagoon here I (hopefully) come!! If the dates haven't been set yet, mid to late May works for me (week of the 19th). Just adding my two cents in case there's wiggle room! See you on the 19th.

    I was in Iceland October 2012 and did a whole Scandinavia trip in two weeks. I'm a BIG advocate for Iceland. :-D

    I'm serious about going on this trip, but I'll have to miss the first meetup. In terms of timing, I'm flexible in May. I'd say earlier in May might be a bit better but I should be able to go any week.

    In terms of activities, some adventurous activities would be nice to go along with any typical cultural and sightseeing activities that Iceland has.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
