Jean Wells Presents Seth Martin in Iceland
JWT introduces Seth Martin in Reykjavik, Iceland. When he came to my office and we started talking about Iceland, he said he wanted to go to this country by himself as he knew exactly what he wanted to do, and indeed he did. With a flight from RDU, and car rental upon arrival, he began to explore this beautiful country and did all the things he wanted to do.
Click on the "Journeys" tab and read his commentary; enjoy his pictures, and you will feel as if you were in Iceland enjoying it all. Thanks, Seth, for sending this to me.
