Bad Souvenir Travel: Try to Be Trendy in a Lopapeysur
In the past, we've had no qualms about saying we like the blog of budget airline Iceland Express. Who wouldn't be pleased to get tips on getting a date with an Icelander or making your own sock movie?
But now this crazy gang have gone too far. In a recent post, they very strongly recommended that we buy a Lopapeysa to wear while we're visiting Iceland (and to proudly show off at home, too). A Lopapeysa is a traditional Icelandic sweater, but take one look at the picture and you know why this hasn't caught on around the world.
Worse than that, they're usually priced from 100 to 200 (US$150-$300) which we think is kind of a high price to pay to look this out of style.
