23.05.2023 The Eco Village

Veröffentlicht: 24.05.2023

We left in the early morning equipped and ready to work. The Eco Village is a community of volunteers and workers growing their own food, taking care of children, adults and elderly people, sometimes with special needs.

They also have a "Walddorf" school, theater, greenhouse and guesthouses. 

We helped in carrying wooden pallets down the hill to finish a hiking trail across some swamp lands. It was heavy and took us a while to figure out the best way to carry the pallets down.

Also the weather was constanly changing from rain to sunny to hailing to cloudy with various levels of wind. So at one point you would be sweating from the heat and freezing 3minutes later.

During lunch break was the first time since I arrived in Iceland that I really wanted to eat some meat. After the heavy work it just felt right. 

We had our lunch in the village canteen. The food was really good and there was also plenty of meat.

After lunch we continued, there was still a lot of wood left but we all put in some serious effort and managed to actually finish the whole way.

The guy who was helping us was very impressed and invited us to come back anytime. It was hard work but a lot of fun.

We headed back to the car and had a longer drive home since the car was electric and loosing battery really quickly so we drove slow to make sure we would make it.

Back home we cooked, played some games and already started regretting that it was the last day tomorrow. We had a lot of fun and the group has really grown together in just 10days.
