We are a family of five living in Akureyri, the capital of the North of Iceland. Júlía, 45 years old register nurse, Sigfús 49 years old electric engineer, Stefanía 24 years old, Bergdís 18, Björn 13 years old and Rjúpa - a Labrador retriever dog. We live in a house 15 min by foot from the center.

Help in the house
We are all open-minded people, we look forward to meeting people from other cultures and countries. We will help our work-awayer's with traveling arrangements and try to introduce to them the Icelandic way of living.
Since we live a pretty busy life so we mostly need help with keeping the house clean, cooking and all that :) Me Julia is learning to become a guide in Iceland and requests assistance in practicing speaking and learning better English, so I will take you some guided tour around Lake Mývatn and area in the north :)
Icelandic and English,
A spare bed-room in our home. Our house is your house, so the fridge is always open of course :)
There is lots to see and do in our area - in fact our town has been voted one of the best places to visit Europe.
