Lions Melvin Jones Award

My Lions club, Lionsklúbbur Njarðvíkur has just awarded me with the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award.  Reasons for so is most likely to show appreciation for the work, time and ambition that I’ve put into our club since joining.

For me being a part of the Lions movement is a bit like being a part of a bigger family that does care for each other, a family that aims to help our community and people in need both domestically and globally.  When I joined it truly was a family reunion every meeting we had with two of my grandfathers there, father, brother and other relatives. And the project that I’ve taken part in on behalf of Lions have awarded me personally with much humility and pride.

I do love getting lost in Iceland

Every now and then I have gone on tours in Iceland, either with tourists, friends or even just family members.  And since I do love doing amateur photography as well I want you to enjoy them as well.

Training for Warriors

Just completed my Level 1 Instructors course, my mentor was Martin Rooney, founder of Training for Warriors.  The course was greatly motivating for me personally and my attitude towards training and physical fitness.
