All 16 Snorris are now back in Reykjavík after spending three weeks with their host families and volunteering in different communities and farms across Iceland. The three weeks have passed by so quickly and although most, if not all, were sad leaving their host families, they are very happy to reunite in the city of smoke. First three arrived at Reykjavík airport at 9.45 and the last one around 3.30. They are all at Guesthouse Óðinn right now sharing their experiences and we are going to Kex Hostel for dinner.
Joining us tonight are Helgi Gunnar (Snorri 2001) - he is related to two participants this year, Breanna and Katie; and Stefán Þór (Snorri 2011). Helgi is here with his aunts and cousins. Stefán moved to Iceland at the end of June and will be doing his Master's in Iceland. We also got a visit from Megan (Snorri 2006) and her mom Heidi!
Tomorrow at 9 AM we are going on the big tour! Starting at Þingvellir, then Skálholt cathedral, looking at waterfalls, volcano exhibit and making Ashley's home made chicken soup close to Hvolsvöllur in the South.
