Day 5 –
BY PHOEBE WILKINS AND EMILY MOORE AND GEORGIE CLEMENTS ❤
The teachers came round at 6AM to wake us up #omg #tooearly.
When we finally got up it was a pitch black walk to breakfast with ferocious wind which woke us up quickly. Luckily we got to sleep for 2 hours on the coach journey to the first waterfall. It was raining which was delightful and we loved the long climb to the top #400steps.
Then we got back in the coach to go to see a #DRAMATIC documentary on Eyja Fjalla Jökull eruption. It was very interesting and inspiring. #awkwardmoment when we realise the woman handing out the tickets at the start was the star of the documentary #mindblowing.
Joel (our legendary bus driver) then took us to another waterfall and then lunch for the 5th soup of the trip which was very yummy at this amazing Viking inspired museum restaurant with skins to sit on and little ceramic bowls.
We finally got to our new accommodation for the night at about 4 and went straight to our rooms (which are SO LOVELY!!!!!). We then went in groups of about 15 for horseriding which was terrifying but amazing.
After that we went straight to dinner – the best one yet not going to lie it was delicious (pizza, chicken and chips) then we had an amazing dessert which was chocolate cake and ice cream! At the end of the night a few of us went down to the hot tubs and had a cheeky gossip and catch up of the trip.
So far it’s been incredible despite the rainy weather but we haven’t let it get our spirits down and we’re looking forward to the next 3 days.
