On this tour, we were hit with a much darker gloomy day and so much ice that I often thought my toes were dying (haha, Florida girl at heart). Half the time I felt like I was in a snow globe or some made up magical winter wonderland. We saw places where they filmed Game of Thrones and touched what looked like the arctic.
