It’s insane looking back on everything that has happened in the past week here in Reykjavík. It’s crazy to think that this whole adventure started out as ten college students and our teacher in a classroom, excited that we got in the class, but also a little bit terrified as to what was going to happen next. This Covering International Festivals: Iceland class has been an amazing experience, even though it’s not completely done yet.
Finally, a day with a bit more relaxation came our way. The Covering International Festivals: Iceland class of 2014 went on the Golden Circle Tour for day four. It felt so good to finally have a day where we weren’t working nonstop. It was also great to get out of the city, even for just a few hours, and enjoy the expansive stretch of untouched Icelandic nature.
