comment UK tourist visa refused 3 times. Need to get there for flight home
I've transited Reykjavik airport numerous times and if you are flying to the US/UK your passport is checked at a border control manned by Icelandic officials before boarding. If you are flying in the Shengen there is a different part of the airport and you don't pass through that control

comment Can I use my UK Provisional Driving License as ID in Europe?
Do you mean as ID for entry to countries or ID for proving you're over 18 in bars etc?

comment What chemicals does airport security use as markers?
@Jonas, thanks. I wasn't aware they did that with liquids too. Whenever I've been checked it's been with the cloth in in the wand thing

comment Customs for two new laptops bought in USA
Why not just take one laptop and run a VM on it so that you can run a 2nd OS (assuming that's the reason for having 2 laptops)

comment How crowded is Iceland in summer?
I've been in June, July, August, September & October! We usually stay in the same farm house so know the owners well. They quite often get people turning up on the day to try to get accommodation, in June, Sept & Oct they were often able to fit them in. In July & August they were fully booked for weeks on end. However, there are several other alternatives nearby. It depends on your personality - if I didn't know where I was due to stay I'd find it quite stressful. When we've needed to find somewhere to stay in another part of Iceland we've looked on farmholidays.is
