On Thursday night, June 16th, we met for the first time at Ölverk Pizzeria and craft brewery. The owners gave us a presentation about the beers they brew, we sampled the beers and ate delicious pizza. This first meeting was quite incredible, faces on the screen became real people for the first time. Norman is much taller than you think. For one of our colleagues this was her first day at work. Can you imagine your first day at work sampling craft beers and eating pizza in Iceland?!
After lunch we travelled on to the Gullfoss waterfall, which translates as “Golden Falls'' an incredible cascade of glacial water from the Hvítá river which descends into the Gullfossgjúfur canyon. Next we stopped at The Great Geysir, a spectacular eruption of boiling water and vapour in a beautiful landscape of rainbow colours. Iceland is aesome, off the scale otherworldly, and our incredible sightseeing day almost, almost led one to whisper “I can't take any more wildly impressive geological features today.”
