Iceland exchange, a unique experience
The 4th school exchange of "National Prides in a European context" project, has been a very enriching experience for all participants. We have learnt about national heritage places in Iceland, like the UNESCO national park Pingvellir and the Global Geopark in Reykjanes. We have discovered wonderful waterfalls like Gullfoss, volcanos like Kerio, Geysir, and old places in Iceland, like Skálholt. We were not lucky to see any northern lines during our stay, but we learnt about them in Perlan museum, where we also could feel the frozen cold in an ice cave. We enjoyed a delicious tomato soup in a real greenhouse of tomatoes. We visited the capital of the country, Reykjavik, and we had the honour of been received by the president of Iceland, Guoni Th. Jóhannesson, in his presidential residence at Bessastadir. The live music in the farewell dinner and the spontaneous dancing of our students was the culmination of a wonderful mobility. Students and teachers have enjoyed a lot every second of this exchange. Congratulations to Ester, Ana and Harpa for the great organisation of this meeting. And many thanks to the families that host our students!!! Thanksa lot for everything!!! You are great!!!
