This trip blew my expectations out of the water, it showed me people share my values on the environment and are being proactive in trying to save our planet. I marveled about the beauty of Iceland, learned about the processes that shaped the country, learned how to harness the Earth's energy to power a country, all while making 32 amazing friends.
