Our trip to Iceland was an unforgettable adventure that started about two years before we ever got on a plane. Over the course of our sophomore and junior years of high school, we spent meetings doing research and discussing where we wanted to go, and how we would be able to get there. All the hours spent researching and fundraising finally paid off when we, about a week before our trip, collectively felt it sink in that “hey, we’re going to Iceland!” Our week there was jam-packed with loads of cultural and outdoorsy activities. We visited museums, went whale spotting, and hiked to our hearts’ content.
Overall, this trip was a once in a lifetime experience that was more than just a trip across the ocean, it was a lesson in what it means to be a Girl Scout: a hard-working citizen of the world, just trying to spread kindness wherever she walks.
