  • Description

    Description

    I’m running a small restaurant in East-Iceland. I need someone to help me in the kitchen at my restaurant. (It takes up to 45 people.) I mainly serve turists, both foreign and Icelandic ones.
    I’m a retired heat-teacher. I’m also a skilled classical singer but a very bad pianist. I used to play guitar a bit. I’m also a qualified guide.
    I love cooking good food and especially making deserts!! I enjoy good wine and good cheese. I do not smoke and smoking or doing drugs is strictly forbidden in my home. I have a wonderful female dog, Sunna.

    They will experience living by the Icelandic coast in NE Iceland. If they aren’t sea-sick, they could join in a short fishing tour. They will also get to know the untouched nature of NE Iceland, go hiking and learn about the wild nature here.
