we drove back to the ring road n1 of iceland, to be honest - the off road driving was not as exciting as the first time we did it a couple of hours ago! lol - everything seemed to be easy! i guess maike was such a good and experienced driver that she learned immediately how to drive in these conditions! lol but my spirits were still high - were going back again to where the famous waterfalls of iceland are located!
we passed first skógarfoss, we will do it AFTER we go to seljalandsfoss - which is more interesting than the other! how many waterfalls in the world can you go behind and make a wish according to icelandic superstition?! and seljalandsfoss presents a perfect opportunity!
we parked the cars in the parking lot and we could already hear the gushing water falling from eyjafjallajökull glacier! then to my happiness - theres a TOILET! ahahahahaha yehey! but once i got our of the car - smoked! lol i need it! and to my amazement - everyone - i mean EVERYONE hopped like travbuddy rabbits towards the waterfall! hahahaha they were so excited to see it and go around behind it - the first one i really spotted hopping was dave! lol he couldnt contain himself! hahahahahaha
obliviously walking slowly, smoking and screwing my camera in the tripod - i bumped into.
i dont know where amber and wilmke where - probably hanging out with the shit lada guys :D hahahaha anyway - im kinda in my own world, trying desperately to shoot just the falls itself - but with tourists arriving and us - it would be impossible.
sun was shining and the weather was good and warm - finally the missing travbuddies suddenly appeared like rabbits out from a hat! lol - then i looked at dave! he was only wearing this... thermal pants! lol apprently he swam/got wet/bathed/dove into the waterfalls hahahahahaha we were finally gathered again and im just so happy! i felt like mother goose, if one or two or three of my hatchlings were missing - i kept looking for them! hahahaha.
then suddenly - to my surprise and HORROR maike said: LETS BUILD A PYRAMID. i wasnt sure if i heard it right - but wilmke second that and these were her EXACT WORDS: YEAH, LETS BUILD A PYRAMID arrrrghhhhh! so it was planned - and i had to roll my eyes because before they can even think about it - I WOULD BE ON TOP! arrrrghhhhhh. janja would be the pyramid spotter - and camera operator, since she had operation on her shoulders, she cant do that (i should have said i was operated on my kidneys :D hhahahaha) so the pyramid began it's move, the big guys - with maike on the base and the middle size guys and girls on to the 2nd layer and yes - im small so i HAVE to be on top! lol
first try - the base was too wobbly! when i started climbing it - it collapsed and i almost hit wilmke on the face with my boots when we fell! it didnt helped either that erik - hahahahahaha - was saying DEEPER DEEPER AAAAAHHHHH hahaahahah hahahahahaha with all of us laughing - no wonder the pyramid collapsed before it was even built! hahahahahah
second try - base was firm, but the second layer was wobbly - it didnt help that i was chuckling so hard that i see so many butts at once in my life hahahaha before i could totally lose myself from laughing - i climbed the pyramid TOO FAST and it collapsed! arrrrggggghhhhhh.
still, maike had that determination! (which i admired - because as i planned this iceland trip - she was the first person who stuck to me through thick and thin even with criticismsfrom non-believers lol) so again we decided to build the pyramid - slowly but surely and janja made sure that the pyramid was compacted and not loosely!
third try: janja told me to get up slowly and she's spotting where the firm place was and climbing on top it was a success! i think i was on top for 20 seconds?!! something like that!
CONGRATULATIONS GUYS FOR SUCCESFULLY MAKING A TRAVBUDDY PYRAMID AT SELJALANDSFOSS - ICELAND! eventhough i could see people looking at us stupidly! hahahahahhahaa.
after that hoolaboola pyramid makng we all got hungry! hahahaha we decided to have a picnic in one of the benches near the parking lot and enjoy such beautiful weather! erik, maike, wilmke and lieke started to cook and we spent a good time there! and finally i got the chance to talk to amber again, i was missing her you know?! hahaha cant remember what our conversation was - but im glad we did talk! and would you believe that rj stopped teasing me?! hahahahahahaha me, wilmke, rj, amber and dave were on the same side of the bench.
then after cleaning all our mess up and going to the toilets - we set off to see briefly skógarfoss!
that was a busy day - but i could feel that i was getting sick - seriously!
