Iceland, where we spent weeks exploring the stunning landscapes of this Nordic island. One of the highlights of the trip was driving around the famous ring road, a 1,332-kilometer highway that circles the entire country. Along the way, we marveled at cascading waterfalls, rugged coastlines, and towering glaciers. We had the chance to immerse yourself in Icelandic culture, sampling traditional cuisine and learning about the country's history and geology. This unforgettable journey through Iceland's dramatic beauty left a lasting impression all of us.

Once upon a time, Ladybird wanted to go to college in Iceland. Her mom told her she would never get in and that she should go to a state college. She got very mad at her mom and jumped out of a moving car.

Back at high school, she signed up for a musical about going to Iceland. She got in and was cast as a not-so-important role. This was upsetting, but she hoped it would help her get into a college in Iceland.

After working very hard at school and extracurriculars, Ladybird was accepted into her dream school in Iceland. Her parents were very proud and she was very excited. She moved away to Iceland and was happy there.
