We are a family of 5. Me (38), my husband (46), our oldest son (15), daughter (11), youngest son (4).
We live in a small village with 1300 inhabitants called Vestmanna in the Faroe Islands. I work within the shipping business and my husband runs his own charter fishing boat from our village. Our boat is a 42 feet big wooden boat and has been in our family for the last 17 years. My husband runs the boat him self and is fishing with tourists almost everyday from the mid of May to the end of September.
We live in a smaller house with a quite big garden of 600 square meter. We have a small cottage in our backyard, that you will be staying at. Our house is located in the centre of Vestmanna, right down to the sea with the local church as our neighbour to one side and the old authentic café to the other side.
Update 10th of Nov´ 2021:
