Getting ready to Go by Nicosia Rainey-Ray age 11

Boston, United States


My mom and I are leaving tomorrow. We are traveling out of US . The first place we are going is to Iceland and Dad Is coming with me is one place. I'm going to miss him a lot. One disappointment, I have to say is that it's going to be very cold and I don't really like cold. We are leaving at 11:30 tomorrow morning. People are going to sta at our house while we are gone so I had to clean up my old room. It was hard but I found alot of stuff that we are missing. I'm going to bring some stuff with me for other children I'm going to meet on my trip. I think they will like these toys. I'm going to give them cars, action figures, and other stuff, maybe even in the DVD. I am very excited to see other countries. I especially want to go to Venice. Venice will be awesome because the streets, instead of hard rock and cement, they are made out of water. It's really cool and another place I want to go to is Cyprus. I would like to go to the city Nicosia because that is my name. I would also like to go to is Paris. The reason why I would like to go there is because of the food. I have always heard that the food there was great, and I like Food. I will also make a lot of friends on this trip. It will be the experience of a lifetime.

Iceland Day 1- Nicosia Rainey-Ray age 11

Reykjavik, Iceland


Day one Reykjavík Iceland.

When I was walking through the town I noticed that there was no African-Americans. Since I live in Boston I'm used to a lot of African-Americans,
but all I see is a lot of the white people. In the town that we are staying in, it smells, really bad. And Water smells bad to.
My mom and tells me it is because of a volcanic mineral called sulfur. So basically, I'm drinking water with sulfur in it.
At first I thought my mom said Silver, and then I was like oh my God, I'm drinking silver! But then she kept pronouncing it she kept saying sulfur, then I was like,
oh, wow. But for some reason, sulfur tasted gross, and awful. It was in my water to, I like the water back home, it was so, not sulfury, I guess?
Also, while I was walking around in the town I noticed that almost every single boy had the same haircut, short and bowl like. It was very strange, a lot of people
in Massachusetts all have different haircuts like, spiky haircuts, buzz cuts, brades, long and loose, afros, or mine, wavy and short.
But all the adults have different hairdos.
While my family was walking down town and we were hungry we thought.. some hotdogs. The hotdogs there were very skinny and there was like a plastic bag covering over it.
The hotdogs taste awful too, it tasted like there was honey on it, which I thought is very nasty. We are going to be trying lots of wierd food today, so I'm expecting
a bad taste in my mouth, and maybe even some good ones.

Blue Lagoon

Reykjavik, Iceland


Me and my mom and my dad and i are going to blue Lagoon. It is supposed to be a spa, my mom says it is from geoeconomic heat from lava.
The water blue and it has calcium in it that helps our skin. When I saw the rocks they were white under the water and black over the water,
they were hard rock like igneous rocks. Igneous rocks are volcanic rocks. They have a bunch of holes inside of them because of the lava bubbles pop.
The reason why the rocks underwater our way is because of the calcium on it, it makes rocks very smooth.
The water feels good on my skin because it contains lots of nutrients and a lot of calcium.
The place looked like the moon, because of all the rocks, it almost looked like a cookie, a watery, green Mossed cookie. We went with two friends we met on our trip.
They were named Katia from Germany and Oliver from Mexico and France.I think they will be the coolest people we will meet on this trip but you never know.
