Episode 4 from the podcast sessions is a really excited one for me! I not only met an amazing human being but learned a lot about a country I want to visit. ICELAND! DID YOU KNOW that locals do not pay electricity?! I had a chat with Sigrun- a local tour guide. We talked about what you can do in Iceland, WHEN to visit and more useful tips and tricks. Enjoy!
