  • Description


    Family of 4 in a small fishing village in Iceland. Two boys, 7 and 9, my husband is a fisherman (daytours) and I am working and taking a PhD. The boys are in sports after school, the older one manages in English and the younger one is a quick learner, typical youtube-englishlearning-kids :) The town is in North-east Iceland, quiet and nice, and quite uesd to welcomming people from all over the world since the fishing industry usually has workers from all over, and there will be a harring season in sept-okt. My family has a farm nearby that we can visit.

    The life in the fishing village is usually quiet, you are close to nature and hiking/walking in the area are Nice although november can be quite cold and sometimes snowee . Visits to the family farm will give you the touch of farmlife. It is a dark month so the northen lights sometimes shine bright. And of course learning some Icelandic might be a part of the process :)
