Where are we?
We’re in Iceland!
We live in Selfoss, a town in the south, ca. 45 minute drive from Reykjavík, the capital. Selfoss is in the vicinity of many of Iceland’s most popular scenic attractions. The town is on the River Ölfusá one of the most voluminous rivers in the country. Selfoss has about 5000 inhabitants.

We live by the river. We have a big garden with a lot of trees and scrubs. The garden attracts  a lot of birds all year around and is an endless source of inspiration.
