Waking up with a sore neck from a shitty pillow, feeling happy because two of my best friends are on this trip with me and hearing a lot of noice down stairs in the hotel, was just great!
I got all excited, dressed quickly and run down the stairs to see who arrived "early" (8.15am) morning. David, Dave, RJ, Jeff and Ian. A good start of the day! Awesome to meet more people!
Unfortunately Mark missed his flight by one minute, so he wouldn't arrive before the next morning. And Davids luggage had gone missing somewhere between the US and Iceland. But it would arrive before we start the roadtrip on the next day.
Having breakfast I heard a man yelling: "Who is the leader of this pack???!!!" I was like, oh no: he is gonna kill me.
Every one got ready, heading to town (less than 10 minutes walk) for a stroll and lunch after visiting some souvenirs shops, a super modern church and some outdoor adventure store to look for gas bottles for our gas cookers.
After lunch we went back to the Travel Inn. Some went to bed for nap, other played card for three hours (game called "Frustration" introduced by Wilmke). Time to wait for the rest. Late afternoon Lauro, Lieke, Matthew, Mike, Ashish and Erik arrived! Almost every one here!! Wow!! So great to meet all these Travbuddies.
Dinner in town, some beers in a Danish and English pub, and party in B5. Some people started sharing really personal stories right away. Lauro has a funny way of fishing and Dave had some experience with q-tips... Amber and I went crazy dancing in B5 and had a lot of fun! At 3.30am Matt, Matthew, David, Amber and I got back to have a few hours of sleep.
What a great second day!! Couldn't wish for a better start. Every one is just amazing. Great bunch of people!
