My wife and I took the Iceland & Fjord cruise back in 2013, together with the families of Dennis Leung ('64) & his brother Eric ('65). As reported in my '64 travel article Iceland we found Iceland very interesting and unique; truly a place of ice and fire. We visited Faroe Islands too as part of the cruise itinerary and I bet you had probably never heard of the islands until they were in the news recently because of the solar total eclipse. Since then I have made a video on the trip and for your viewing in case you are interested, please click here.
Just before the Iceland cruise my wife and I also took a side trip to Prague, a city we found to be one of our most worth visiting cities. I also made a video on the trip and reported it in our '64 article Prague, Czech Republic. Click here to watch the video.
