But in every sincerity this farm is a magnificent place and the family that lives there are very...

Yesterday was a tiring day, cutting diamond shapes out of dry turf. The wall we are building is definitely taking shape and we are feeling quite proud of it! The wind yesterday was whipping soil into our eyes and there was a silly moment where we were all in our goggles/sunglasses/plastic bags/ jacket...

We were welcomed in a magnificent place at the end of the Westfjords. There is a restaurant, guest houses, a campsite, and two small summer houses and they also have horses to make excursions.

It seems incredible that two weeks have already passed since our group of six volunteers from Italy, Chile, Poland, France and Spain left Reykjavík eastbound discovering all the wonders that the south coast road of Iceland has to offer. We have been working in one of the most famous museums...
