About Our Family

We are a family of five; myself (43 year old lawyer and poet), my husband (43 year old sailor and artist), our two sons (ages 4 and 10) and young Afghan refugee that lives with us. We love to travel, see new places and meet new people. We are open to every where in the world if only it is a bit warmer than Iceland.

In our free time we try to spend time with family and friends, go to the swimming pool, read, bike, go on hikes and visit our country.

Lifestyle

My main interests are hikes, reading, politics and travelling. Learning about new cultures, languages and cuisine.
