Two years ago we bought an old house in great need of some TLC. We have been renovating the house gradually on the inside and this summer we plan on working on the house on the outside. We plan on doing some landscaping in the garden and painting the house. We live in the North of Iceland, in a small town called Akureyri with 17.000 residents.

We are 5 minutes away from the main bus station and all buses are free in Akureyri for those who want to take a quick tour around town.
