  • Description


    We are Auður and Böðvar, a couple with a 4 year old daughter and 2 almost adults boys (17 and 18) + two friendly Icelandic sheepdog.

    Our interest include horses and nature (ok, that's easy) but collectively we also love airplanes, cars, bulldozers, flattering dresses, a nice afternoon sherry, cozy movie nights, painting, playing computer games, and digging food into the ground. We are straight forward and gay friendly. We don't wait for life to happen, and we never wait for others to make our lives better.
