In my opinion this is one of the nicest campaigns of recent years, and it enables you to befriend Iceland almost anywhere online, be that on Twitter, Flickr or Facebook – or on its own blog, where guest authors, both visitors and locals (like Annie Atkins, for example) write about their experiences on and with the Island. Have a look and become a friend.
