Hitched a Presidential Ride Home

Strange Iceland
10. Apr 2017

It seems that all we hear about these days are stories of Iceland's down-to-earth president, Guðni Th. Jóhannesson. His stance on the pineapple-on-pizza argument became news around the globe most recently, and now it would not surprise us if he's heading around the globe again after a chance-encounter with two young Icelandic boys at a local swimming pool.

The boys, as they waited for a ride with one of the boys' mother who was running late, then saw as the president of Iceland headed out of the pool towards his presidential ride. The boys, Sölvi and Tristan, then approached the president and asked if he would give them a ride home. Unsurprisingly, President Guðni agreed and took the boys home in his luxurious Lexus presidential ride.

"Mom, you don't have to come pick us up. We'll be there with the President's car in a bit!"

Where else might this happen than in Iceland?
