A Secret Shovelling Mission

Back in 1923 a man named Björn Andrésson gathered some of his friends from the local youth association to construct a pool, Seljavallalaug. It’s one of Iceland’s oldest swimming pools and you enter at your own risk. Only cleaned once a year, it’s filled with green goo most of the time but hey, entrance is free! After the Eyjafjallajökull Volcano eruption, the pool was filled with ashes. It was no biggie. A group of volunteers simply gathered and cleaned it up with shovels. Swimming pool solidarity. That’s the spirit. If you want to see what a great job they did, just head out there. You probably won’t need a shovel, but you never know. - See more at: inspiredbyiceland.com/secrets/map/#secret247
