Gossip Girl's Penn Badgley recently caught up with Conde Nast Traveler and shared some thoughts on his recent travels with the magazine.

"The landscape in Iceland was intimidating and brutal: geysers, waterfalls, billion-year-old moss-covered lava, " he says of his trip to the island nation.

"And Reykjavík's nightlife is just as wild. At Prikid bar, they played great American hip-hop, served shot after shot of a licorice liquor called Topaz, and treated me as if I were the entire cast of Ocean's Eleven," he adds.

The gossip guy also talks about his trip to Southeast Asia; however, his old fall-back is an annual trek to Park City, Utah for some skiing with his semi-pro friends.

Badgley is currently shooting his new film Margin Call, which also stars Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Irons and Zachary Quinto.
