Eat, Sleep, Hike
Thursday, August 08
It is finally here! For months we have been counting down the days until Iceland!

As soon as the team reassembled, it was like we picked up right where we left off on the training hike! After navigating the airport we took a shuttle to our hotel right in the heart of Reykjavik. We walked around the city and had lunch at a cute little cafe. The fish and chips was delicious!. 

It is hard to put into words how beautiful this city is: fresh air, sunshine and something new to look at on every corner. Most of the team took a redeye flight so we were pretty exhausted and decided to head back to the hotel for a quick nap. We then walked to dinner and window shopped along the way. We had a dinner of pasta and pizza. Carb loading was a must for tomorrow’s trek!  We headed back to the hotel to pack our bags for the big adventure.

Overall the team is so excited to be together and we can’t wait for the journey we will take over the next few days! 

My father would have loved to see and hear about this trip. He would have thought I was crazy for wanting to go somewhere cold! I choked up at dinner when telling my reason for being part of the trek to my teammates because I love to tell his story.

I am so honored to be a part of this team and form bonds that will be for life.

With that I will say goodnight, even though it does not ever get really dark in Iceland during the summer.

Next stop to move mountains!
