This morning we got up at 7.15am and had a super healthy breakfast (pancakes with toffee sauce!), then finished packing (?) and headed off for the Blue Lagoon at 9.00am, sadly waving goodbye to the Dominos opposite our hotel. Everybody was having a jam to Ed Sheeran on the coach, which was great banter. The sun rose during the journey, and the skies were tinted pink! ??
Then it started raining/hailing outside the bus and everyone was weirded out by the noise that suddenly appeared. ?
After that, we arrived at the blue lagoon (we had to use ‘library voices’) and we had to tie our hair back otherwise our hair would be seriously dry from the silica ?. The building was really cool and modern and we had to use these cool wristband thingys that gave us entry, opened and locked our lockers and scanned our payment! It was really hot in the lagoon but it was really relaxing and we used a mud mask which is supposedly helpful to skin conditions. Overall the lagoon was really cool and relaxing ?.
After visiting the viking museum, we watched the teachers taking a selfie. ?
We then headed off to the airport to go home! #wewillmissyouiceland #homesweethomeherewecome ?✈️?

Today was a very busy day. We set off at 9 from Selfoss Gesthus and headed to Gulfoss, the waterfall in The Golden Circle. We looked down on it from up high then went lower down and had a big group photo. It was very windy.
Next we travelled to the geysers. They were amazing to see and it was a lot of fun but lots of us ended up slipping and falling over as it was so icy!
Then we ate the lunch we prepared in the morning sitting on the snow and headed off to our next destination. Our group split in two and half went to a secret lagoon and the other went to Fridheimar farm.
At Fridheimar they grow tomatoes and have around 50 horses which they ride and took care of. It was very interesting to see how they grow the tomatoes in a massive green house all year round.
The Secret Lagoon was a big hot spring swimming pool and was very very hot, though was a lot of fun.
Although it was a busy day, we had so much fun and took lots of photos for everyone to see. Can’t wait for day three!
