Super dad!

Yesterday we went home to my parents to celebrate the day my dad, Bjarni Gíslason, was born. Dad is one of my favorite persons on the planet and one of the greatest guys out there! He has always been there for me, supported me and has always had faith in me.

The first song that comes to my mind when I think about dad is "Flash" by Queen, (click here to view). Well this song describes my dad pretty well: "Flash, saviour of the universe." You may find this a bit dramatic of me to compare him to the savoiur of the universe, but you should have seen him in his thirties, long dark hair, well trimmed beard, leather jacket and last but not the least he drove a motorcycle!

Ever since he was born in Konso, Ethiopia, in 1961, he has been changing lives. My parents dedicated 8 years of their lives to missionary and aid to the people of Ethiopia. Now my dad works for the Icelandic Church Aid, so day by day he saves the world for people all over the world and still manages to be the best dad in the world! Happy birthday, we love you! Here is a short video I shot during his birthdayparty!
