Brian Rueb is a sad, middle-aged, high school teacher who is looking to have an adventure before he gets too old to do so. He convinces his awesome wife and kids to let him leave home for three months and take photographs in Iceland. This is Iceland before it became the hotspot on everyone's bucket list. He packs as much as he can into his backpack and sets off. This tale is an autobiographical story of all the crazy events, characters, and experiences that he had while on the road.
