Anyway, getting to the point. Þingvellir is also the sight of the ‘first’ parliament of sorts (although it wasn’t democratic) as the Viking descendants met each year to share laws, settle disputes and get the women pregnant. There may have been some horse trading too. The place is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The place is epic special and not far from this place, Regan and Gorbachev signed some Perestroika agreements. (see you’ve learned something, right?)
Next, I shared the fact that Chris Hadfield once has a dream:

When I turned my back on my son, he had roped up to a tree and started climbing. I decided to connect with him during this activity – although climbing to the top of a holy tree isn’t the best idea ever!
If you haven’t come across and used the awesome Step Up Challenge in your school yet, get on it!
I was guiding in Iceland last week. It was totally scary at the front of the coach whilst being totally sweet at the same time. I noticed that the Icelandic driver was quiet, so we got chatting. Best stories ever.
What can you learn every day? Take part in a Micro Adventure. I dare you.
In Iceland last week I stayed at one of the best places ever run by the most amazing couple ever. The bloke is Iceland’s Got Talent legend and I knew about the talking Raven. So when I arrived, I asked after her. She had died that morning. Seeing that this was upsetting, we allowed him to talk to our group and reminisce about the good times. Sometimes listening and an open mind is all that’s needed.
What is your best memory of an assemblies?
