Tourism runs Iceland. Pictured is our Ice Cave tour guide who works as a teacher but recently started doing tours as a way to help support his wife and four kids at home - the last of which, he jokingly told us, was unplanned.
I had mixed feelings about that, but I wonder what options he'd have if not for the opportunity tourism provides.
Do you gladly surrender the peace and untamed natural beauty of your Homeland for opportunities to provide a better life for your family? Maybe so.
