What did SEEDS volunteers do after their morning work and workshops? Oh, lots of things!
Take, for instance, exploring streetart and other art forms in Reykjavík; during our trips, Slav-squatting for photos and somersaulting in front of the Öxarárfoss waterfall in Þingvellir National Park; rolling in the grass after hiking through a lava field on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula; and watching seals frolicking in the ocean and shooting portraits amid landscapes from Milka chocolate commercials.
Neil Armstrong and other American moonwalkers had their field training on Iceland because the terrain is similar to that of the Moon. During another one of our trips, our volunteers not only walked on the lunar surface of the Reykjanes Peninsula – they explored the whole Solar System, a scale model of it, displayed out there. What is more, Iceland blessed us with sunny weather, crazy rainbows, and majestic sunsets – plenty of opportunities to take striking pictures.
Thank you for these otherworldly experiences, Iceland!
