1st Day in Iceland

We made it into Reykjavík this morning at 6:00 AM. We headed straight to the Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa built into the volcanic rock. We toured the facility and learned so much! We learned about the geothermal plant, how the lagoon was created, and the benefits of the silfra in the water. We had two great tour guides, Stefan and David who answered all of our questions and comments from where are the elves, to teach us Icelandic, to how the US compared to Iceland.  We then headed into the blue lagoon. It was beautiful and warm. It is naturally heated by geothermal energy, and it renews itself 40 hours, as our tour guide said, “it is both artificial and natural.” As one of the 25 wonders of the world according to National Geographic, it was truly amazing to experience and to see what renewable energy can do. Then we headed to Reykjavík. Tomorrow we start class at the university!
