There have been a halt in activity on the page. This is simply cause I am not around a computer that often any more! since I got hired in Iceland, I travel light and leave most of my belongings behind for the summer. All that came with me over is climbing and camping gear. That when you think about it ; its plenty.
The job I do in Iceland is different from any job I have had in Norway, in the way that it is a huge operation. There is more than a hundred people up at the ice a day, we are a double digit of guides at any given time. And there is so many resources!
The commercial guiding might seem uniform and boring, but in reality the mass commercial guiding is for a time. A very good opportunity to test and learn a whole set of different skills. Both hard and soft, as for managing people. And to recognize the opportunities the terrain gives you. As well as where it will restrict you.
This is something you wont have time to explore if you do longer trips, or if you don't guide as much. But being on the ice two times a day. In the approximate same area, you can really get a feel of what is really good. And how different guests act in different places.
living the glamorous life as a guide, with low-to-no rent! And a obsession for the cold
