Welcome to our life. We are a married gay couple Hafsteinn (36 years) and Hakon (33 years). Along with our 2 cats and our dog Hnota we live in East Iceland in a cute fishing village called Neskaupstadur. Hafsteinn is an international artist and Hakon runs a tourism company, as well we are a part of a family farm business. We are starting our long time dream project of making a nonprofit creative initiative to help our town , the project is based on a Queer Artist Residency and a Queer Festival in our small, peaceful town.
