I am in Iceland from June 18th to August 2nd. Right now until tomorrow, I'm in a little ecovillage called Solheimar (welcoming the sun) which is somewhere near the K in Reykjavik on this map. It's a teeny tiny hamlet of about 100 people living a largely sustainable lifestyle. This weekend, we'll be going to Akureyri for about 3 1/2 weeks where I'll be taking classes at the Renewable Energy School and living with a host family. Then we're going to Reykjavik for a week. Then we'll be in Isafjordur which is a small town of about 2000 people. At some point, we'll also be going to Grimsey (which is above the Arctic Circle) and we flew into Keflavik (and got skyrr!).
Just a brief "this is what I'm doing" update. I'll post more about our first day flying in at 6AM (2AM eastern), touring a geothermal electric plant, driving through the country side, and Solheimar later.
