Trip Report My First Trip to Europe...

Jump to last reply

was too long ago to admit - let's just say the Viet Nam War was going on and with my student deferment I was tooling around Europe rather than mired in some mud paddy - thank god!

Lots of things have changed from this trip decades ago.

I'm a bit late writing this trip report but hey...

First of all to get a cheap air fare I had to fly from Detroit to NY and hop the 'hippie airline' to Iceland and then after a two-day break there onto Luxembourg (I could have gone straight thru with a few-hour re-fueling stop in Iceland) -

So Iceland was the first country I visited in Europe and it was an eye opener - Landing at Keflavik airport (full of U.S. military planes) the long bus ride into Reykyavik was bleak - mile after mile of treeless bleak volcanic terrain - nothing much in sight.

Reykyavik however was so with it and modern -every young male had long Beatles-style hair cuts and spoke American-like English.

The fish stands down by the harbor were cheap but even then most things were so so expensive, especially for one on a starvation budget of about $5/Day and yes that was very possible. I still have my notebook of expenses in places like Germany and France where my total for food and hostel was about $3/day! (Of course I had a Eurail Youthpass back in the day when they were almost always a great deal as European train fares were calculated by so much per kilometer - a flat fee according to distance and the pass in a few trips paid off.)

I stayed at Icelandair'sHotel Loftleidir in Reykyavik on one of their special few-day break of journey specials - some of the best food I ever had - unlimited buffets for dinner and breakfast - a heck of a deal.

I took a bus out to see some steaming pools about an hour outside of Reykyavik but that's about it.

I was glad to be moving on - Iceland was just too modern and bleak. I marveled at all the open-air swimming pools in Reykyavik - heated by thermal underground water.

NEXT - Onto Europe proper in Luxembourg!
