I have now spent little over five wonderful months in Iceland and lucky for me, I have another month and a half left! My job as a placement officer in an internationally well-known and active non-profit organization has been extremely tiring, yet rewarding experience. I happily welcomed a new group of volunteers every single week, coming from different parts of the world.
Summer season started few weeks ago which means more people, not only in our hostel but in Reykjavík. This small capital is completely packed with tourists and adventure seekers! The weather is as unpredictable as it was during the wintertime, one minute you are enjoying sunshine, short moment later it’s raining. This doesn’t bother me at all since I am used to bad weather in Finland but for some short-term volunteers the ever-changing weather can be quite frustrating.
I mostly spent my free time in Reykjavík but every once in a while I took part in weekend excursions. My absolute favorite thing in Iceland has to be all these gorgeous mountains!
Bless bless (bye bye) !
