Me and Hannaliisa we had the same host, Gudmundur so we were together. But our host wasn’t in Iceland, he came with the later flight. First we met his father and sister. They were really nice and friendly. At home we watched tv and ate pizza. They also had one dog and cat.

In the morning our host gave us Icelandic gloves, which his mother had made. They are really warm. Our last day the  Estonias and Swedish and Austrians went to the Blue Lagon. This place was really beautiful and we all enjoyed it. Outside there was big wind and cold, so we had to be in the warm water utill neck. We made white clay mask to our face, this was good. After Blue Lagon, we went to Reykjavik to shopping. We spent our last night at the hostel. We left  Iceland at 7.45 in the morning. We enjoyed the trip and the performance very much.

The trip to Iceland was fun. I was amazed when the plane landed in Iceland. The nature was so different. The people in Iceland were very nice. I really liked the family I stayd with. The audience in Iceland was great. The stage was a bit bad, but it was finally OK. After the show we went to the Golden circle tour. The nature was amazing. The whole trip and project was very cool and I liked every minute of being with you! Siim Sillamägi, Estonia.

 

Everything in Iceland was good. All the people wew smiling.They seem happy. There family I stayed with was excellent. All the members of the family were so caring. I felt like at home and that was a good feeling.

The show in Iceland was good. It was the last time we could present the show. The audience was wonderful, they were so quiet and they listened all the show very carefully.
