Back in February, Lottie was lucky enough to take a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Iceland with Sarah Eames, a primary school teacher from Leicester in the UK!
We caught up with Sarah to find out more about her amazing experience, and to hear what she and Lottie got up to there!
1) Where are you from, and what do you do for a living?
I’m from the city of Leicester, called and work in a primary school called Sandfield Close. I am a very happy primary school teacher who loves teaching, I especially love teaching science.
2) Describe yourself in 3 words.
Cheerful, optimistic and disorganised.
3) Which Lottie/Finn would you say your most like?
I think I am most like Fossil Hunting Lottie, sensible boots, clothes that can get dirty and a rucksack with lots of important things in it!
4) Why do you like Lottie?
I like Lottie as she is a positive role model for the children, she likes science and wears everyday clothes.
5) Tell us about your recent trip with Lottie!
Lottie and I were very lucky to go on a STEM Learning course with lots of other teachers to Iceland.
We visited the bubbling mud pools of Krýsuvík, the Volcano House and Aurora Centre in Reykjavik. We also visited the Geothermal Power Station in Hellisheidi and a geothermally heated greenhouse where we ate amazing tomato soup!
So many amazing places in a wonderfully important country geologically. I went swimming in a very cold lake and sat in very hot bubbly pools.
Thank you so much to Sarah Eames who shared her wonderful adventures and pictures with us with her recent trip with Lottie in Iceland!
Sounds like you had an amazing trip, definitely managed to squeeze in so much fun in a couple of days! Iceland is a truly unique country to visit, and is full of exciting adventures and learning opportunities :)
