I’m excited to finally be visiting Iceland this month to attend the Society of American Travel Writers annual convention in Reyjkavik. (Not least, happy because after spending almost the entire summer in the desert heat of Palm Springs,I’m ready for some chill air!)

It promises to be an awesome time meeting long-time friends and peers, making acquaintance with editors and PR executives, and having lots of fun and adventure as I explore Iceland’s raw beauty.

Fellow SATW members… I look forward to seeing you there.
