We are a family of six (thirteen if you count all our pets as well). We have Gunni the dad, who works at sea. Brynja the mom, a teacher currently on sick leave, Villi the teenager who is 13, Dagbjört the athletic who is 10, Eva who is a 5 year old little prankster and last but not least Júlíana who is turning three this summer.
We are a family who loves to “hygge” (yes, we lived in Denmark), and enjoy the quiet live on the east side of Iceland.
We have a small dog called Mandla, a Maltese that loves to cuddle and take short walks.
We travel a lot to the “capital of the north” Akureyri where Brynja’s parents live and there we enjoy everything that the town has to offer.
We live in a small town on the east coast of Iceland called Neskaupstaður. It has a population of 1600 people. There is wonderful nature by the seaside and the mountains, we can go hiking, kayaking, swimming, golfing and lots more. There is beautiful nature all around. The sun shines almost around the clock in the summertime and in the winter there is of course the Aurora Borealis.
we also have a coffehouse, museums a local pub and resturats where you could meet other locals
