Jada Yuan: Going to Iceland for the first time, I had some idea of what to expect: tiny horses, stunning waterfalls, Jon Snow and the Wildlings. Nothing I imagined, though, could come close to the experience of being there in person. Just driving from the airport felt like landing on an alternate moon covered in moss and fog. What made this leg of the 52 Places trip most exciting, besides being my first out of the Americas, though, was that Lucas Peterson, the Times’ Frugal Traveler columnist, was joining me. Lucas has been doing some version of my job for around three years now, and ever since I started this crazy journey, he’s been a shoulder to lean on across WhatsApp data lines. We had never met, so we figured why not dive in with a three-day road trip?
