It's official: I am now the proud owner of a $528 round trip plane ticket from Baltimore to Amsterdam via Icelandair during Spring Break (I have to plan these things ahead, of course, but I only waited four months this time). It was so cheap because it stops over in Reykjavik, Iceland - the others were at least $600 via United (their website says it costs $500. They lie. They lie through their faces.) I know nothing of Icelandic cuisine, except the skyr that Whole Foods sells. I only know a little more about Dutch cuisine (more a mix of Dutch, Indonesian and Surinamese cuisine). I almost flew Icelandair to London last December, but found a cheaper fare on British Airways (believe it or not). Now I just have to hope for a big tax refund next year. And I am not doing much traveling otherwise anyway - just a road trip to Jamestown, VA (yes, it is FINALLY happening), on Thanksgiving weekend, and probably a trip to NYC to see the new Young Frankenstein musical in January (much cheaper than in December, and the white sales will still be going on).
