A group of 16 Snorri participants; 12 girls & 4 boys; 5 from the US and 11 from Canada, arrived in Iceland early in the morning on June 14. After wonderful but busy 2 weeks at the University of Iceland and different visits like to the President of Iceland, Canadian and American Embassies, the Icelandic Parliament and events such as Höfundur óþekktur concert at Harpa, Icelandic Night and river rafting, the big day finally arrived. June 26 all 16 Snorris each took on a different journey to their relatives outside of the "big" city; very exciting but a bit scary at the same time. This is where they are staying (some at more than one place for the 3 weeks): Akureyri, Svalbarðseyri (the farm Hallandi), Grund farm Eyjafirði, Selfoss, Egilsstaðir, Seglbúðir farm by Kirkjubæjarklaustur, Blönduós, Sveinsstaðir in Húnavatnssýsla, Sauðárkrókur and Bústaðir farm, Einarsstaðir farm Þingeyjarsýsla, Njarðvík, Hveragerði, Hafnarfjörður, Mosfellsbær, Reykjavík, Ísafjörður, Vestmannaeyjar, a farm by Þingvellir National Park and Höfn í Hornafirði.
Lots of adventures and life-changing experiences.
Góða ferð Snorrar!
