People of Island vol.7

One of the recent volunteers, I believe from Mexico. This photo is showing you a bit our modest living quarters in a former school house.

People of Island vol.6

I didn't know much her, but I found her interesting. I can't even remember where she was from - I guess from Spain, Ruth's friend. But maybe from Germany. Anyway, whatever. I like the light and her pose, but the beer is not hers!

People of Island vol.5

Though Icelandic names are no piece of joke, I can still remember some of them perfectly, even after 12 years. This is Sesselja Traustadottir. She was our bike work camps support staff, and thanks to her we were able to take groups of 60 youngsters on bikes from Reykjavik to Blue Mountains near Reykjavik. What a woman! Love her!

People of Island vol.4

Maria was so excellent that she came to visit me during my volunteering. We did a West-Iceland roadtrip, which was really fun. I can remember some great  experiences and the fact that we used 16 cars during our little 3 day trip. Luckily she shared my love to malt drink. Yum!

People of Island vol.2


I didn't know then personally, but I took their portrait for the fashion section. They definitely stepped out from another era, eh?

People of Island vol.1

Twelve years ago around this time the infamous Eyjafjallajökull erupted while I was in Iceland during my volunteering placement for five months. What times those months were. Good and bad, definitely. But again besides nature the people were the coolest experience. This week I will present some faces of the people I met while located in Reykjavik. I am so sorry, I have forgotten most of the words, especially those of my volunteers :(


My first ever volunteer, a lovely girl from the USA.
