comment Driving in Iceland: a good idea?
NOTE: I'm not that sure of driving conditions in winter (specially the less-used roads).

comment Driving in Iceland: a good idea?
Ivan, I said so because when I was there, I saw some exotic and calm places, where I thought I would just stay around for a couple of days, relax and hike around. For example, When I was at a lake in Pingvellir National Park (which is on North American tectonic plate), I saw some houses around the lake and thought I would just relax and hike/camp around. Also, there are lot of isolated & far-flung houses in Iceland (you can rent some of 'em). As for visiting interesting locations with a normal car, you can cover most of 'em, apart from some parts of central Iceland and Glacier/Volcano trips.

comment When and where do I have the highest chance of seeing auroras?
Also, I recently came across this article on BBC about some guy and his company: Aurora Hunters, who help you in chasing Aurora Borealis.

Mark, it's anecdotal. When I did that volunteering project, I interacted with good number of Icelandic people and a few volunteers who were based at Westfjords, who told me that there's a high chance of seeing Aurora Borealis, at Westfjords. Also, Iceland is latitudinally more closer to the North Pole, than Finland or Sweden or Most parts of Norway (South).

comment Can I make reservations for trains in Italy, France and Belgium from the Bahn ticket desks in Germany?
True that, Gilles. When I said "In most of the cases", I was talking about booking at the Bahn ticket desks.
