St. Louis Mosaic Project Vin Ko Writes About Flying WOW Air

When my partner and I discovered that there would be a direct flight between St. Louis and Iceland we were ecstatic. I had made the journey to Iceland with some friends in October 2017 and the 30-hour journey was not exactly ideal. Sarah looked up flights and she was astounded that a one-way ticket to Iceland was $99 so she quickly texted me and we bought tickets the day that the flights were announced. With the added baggage cost, the total cost of the flight was about $350 a person – that’s cheaper than a flight to California. We were excited to try Wow Air, and the experience was better than we expected. The staff were incredibly friendly, the seats were the size of typical airplane seats, and we had decent legroom.  

Pro Tip: Fill up a water bottle before boarding the flight – water isn’t free.

After a 6 ½ hour overnight flight, we landed in Keflavik. Despite the minimal sleep we got on the plane, we were ready for our Iceland adventure. We picked up the campervan at the airport.  We organized our bags in what would be our home and our mode of transportation for the next five days. Before embarking on our trip around the country, we stopped by a grocery store to stock up on food.  Eating at restaurants is expensive (e.g. $30 burger or $60 whale if you’re feeling adventurous) so we wanted to be prepared to cook our own food.
