    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 :)
