Have you planned your fall getaway yet? With the start of school, football season and the holidays, fall can be a pretty busy and overwhelming time – all the more reason to book an escape from it all!  Is your dream getaway a warm sunny beach or a cool weather city retreat?

I’m thrilled to partner with Club Carlson to show you that planning your getaway doesn’t have to be difficult or stressful. If you’re a Club Carlson member, you can quickly and easily book your accommodations directly from the Club Carlson website.

Where’s my dream getaway for this fall?

With the next few months being extremely busy for me, I’d love to head to Reykjavik, Iceland for a quick, long weekend getaway.  (Did you know that you can fly to Iceland from the east coast in as little as five hours)!?


Upon my arrival, I’d check into Park Inn by Radisson Reykjavik Keflavik Airport.  Nestled in Keflavik city centre only 5 kilometres from Keflavik International Airport, the Park Inn offers easy access to the seaside and to the Blue Lagoon.  The hotel houses 82 hotel rooms and suites, and boasts amenities such as free high-speed WiFi, a refrigerator and a free airport shuttle.


For such a quick trip, why not treat myself and upgrade to a Junior Suite?

When I’m ready to get out and explore, I can hop a bus to Reykjavik’s city center.  While in the city, I’d stroll the Old Harbour and catch a puffin or whale-watching tour, then head to the National Museum of Iceland or the Reykjavik Art Museum.  After, I’d sample some Nordic cuisine and experience Reykjavik’s epic nightlife scene.

The unique location of the Park Inn also makes the hotel the perfect base to explore the black sand beaches and lava fields nearby.  Just outside of town, I can search for the stunning Northern Lights. Before I hop my plane back to the states, I’d spend an afternoon at the world famous Blue Lagoon spa.
