Neil - The Extraordinaire

Neil has been living in Iceland for 5 years. Moving here as a scuba diving guide. He set up a number of operations for companies here, all of which have flourished. Having explored the south and Westfjords he decided to move to North East to much less travelled parts of Iceland where he found himself as a guardian of a geothermal swimming pool for the summers.
 

In winter he works on tourism projects, enjoys photographing the northern lights and murdering songs on his guitar.
