Godan dagin!

Tuesday 17th February 2015
Godan dagin (good day!)
Today we woke up at 7 to see even more snow had fallen over night!

We had breakfast at 8 and even though we were not able to have pancakes on Shrove Tuesday we did have some delicious waffles!

At 9 we headed off to an Icelandic school called Hveragerde, they were very friendly and very good at English and gave us a detailed tour of their school.
We had fun seeing all the different classrooms and the differences between their school and ours.
They were very welcoming and friendly towards us and continued to impress us with their variety of English vocabulary.
Once we had seen their school we had a big snowball fight, England vs Iceland (obviously England won) and then we went for a walk to visit the hot springs.

They were really beautiful and the Icelandic students knew a lot of information on them. It was a lot of fun and a great experience.

At 12 o’clock we left the school to head for the golden circle tour which we were all looking forward to. It was very pretty and full of interesting scenery.
At 2:00 we left for the golden falls. It was amazing, we all enjoyed taking photos of it and with it.

Waterfalls, glaciers and brownies

Sunday 15.02.2015

The day started off very early as we had a lot to do.
First we watched an interesting video about a family coping with the 2010 Icelandic eruption. Then we drove to a huge waterfall where we walked up lots of stairs and saw it from above.




Afterwards we went on a glacier hike which was very chilly but the views were fantastic.

Just when we thought the day was over, we stopped off at an amazing black beach. It was a quick stop but was still enjoyable.

Finally we arrived at Hotel Laki where we’re going to stay here for one night. The dinner was good but the brownies looked better than they tasted.
