I’m in the northern part of Iceland right now doing a Vivation training, and the place here is spectacular and beautiful, fantastically green and desolate. Although it’s one of the greenest places I’ve ever been, there are almost no trees. To change this Icelanders have over the last 30 years been planting trees all over the country. I saw over a million trees fully mature trees spread out over several square kilometers near Akureyri. It was an impressive sight to see a regrown forest that wasn’t there 30 years earlier! I’ve taken almost 400 pictures so far… too many to share (so I’ve put them up on Facebook). In Sauðárkrókur, where I’m staying, the whole town goes to the beach to June 20/21 to watch the sun almost set, then rise back up again for a day that never ends. It’s 24 hours of daylight, and the first day of summer. This “afternoon” party starts around 9pm and goes to 6am. They watch as the sun goes half-way below the ocean horizon before rising again into the “morning” sky.
