Writer Jade Bremner describes why she loves Iceland. "The geological theme park that is Iceland was, for years, a well-known secret among hardcore adventurers. NASA astronauts have trained in its otherworldly landscapes, but you don't have to be a seasoned risk-taker to experience volcanoes, waterfalls, glaciers, natural baths and geysers - Iceland's biggest draw is that its wonders lie all around. I return to the land of fire and ice as much as I can, preferably in summer, when the days go on forever - even then, there's never enough time to see it all."

Writer Nicola Williams describes why she loves the Netherlands. "Having family here, the Netherlands has always been a natural port of call for me. Living the high life in Amsterdam, gorging on sand dunes and Van Gogh art in the Hoge Veluwe National Park and two-wheel island-hopping in Friesland are among my highlights. But it's the dutch life attitude I love most. Fusing an old-fashioned 'great outdoors' simplicity with an insatiable desire to design and innovate for the good of the land, this country has its finger right on the 'live well' pulse."
