ALONG THE ANGLOSPHERE:

Iceland Popular among Likeable US Tourists (EYGLÓ SVALA ARNARSDÓTTIR, June 14, 2016, Iceland Review)

More tourists from the US than any other nation visited Iceland in May, or 26.2 percent of the 124,000 foreign tourists who departed from Keflavík International Airport last month, according to the Icelandic Tourist Board. This is an increase by 12,296 US tourists compared to May 2015.

US tourists are popular among Icelanders, particularly Icelandic sales people, as RÚV discovered. "They are great, almost without exception. They are always in a good mood and wanting to chat," commented Stefanía Bergsdóttir, who works in 66°North on Bankastræti in downtown Reykjavík. Apparently, US tourists are also keen shoppers.
