Iceland Naturally has launched a website aimed at Brits, geared towards promoting Icelandic culture both at home and in the UK.

While we’re not British, we gave the Web site a look-see. Our favorite components? Free music and video downloads from Icelandic bands (we especially liked Mugison), recipes for culinary delights from the land of fire and ice, and Dateline Iceland, a monthly catalog of clips spotlighting travel deals, restaurants, and Iceland-centric news items.

What’s not great? The not so up-to-the-minute news blasts: the Rite of Spring listing from March occupies the top slot in the News column. Still, we’ve signed up for the Dateline Iceland newsletter to keep abreast of travel deals and we suggest you do as well.

About the author

TJ developed a taste for travel while living (and ostensibly) studying in Rome. He soon began catching bargain-basement Ryanair flights to various European destinations, where he would immediately scope out the dodgiest bar upon arrival. (He also saw some art along the way.) After returning to SUNY Albany, he developed an independent study in travel writing, which was mostly an excuse to drive cross-country. The 7200 mile trip, made in 11 days with two friends in a very small red car, culminated in a collection of essays called MOVE!, which he describes as incredibly self-indulgent and quite un-publishable. After moving to Manhattan, he found his way to EuroCheapo and has spent most of his time writing reviews for the New York City listings.
