About Our Family

We are four living in the house; Hjálmar is a writer and politician, Ósk an artist and tour operator (, Hulda (20) is a high-school student interested in music and languages, 
Villi (18) is a high-school student as well. He likes music, football, snowboarding, art, comics and computer games.
Borghildur our oldest daughter (26) lives in Berlin now, studying architecture.
We have a very nice and independent cat called Lotta. Our neighbours or relatives normally take care of her while we travel.
We have made 5 home exchanges and loved all of them. Last summer we made a youth exchange and it was wonderful. A great boy from Marseille came for a visit and Villi went with him to Marseille for two weeks.


We are interested in art literature, nature and outdoor activities. We are marathon runners and love to run both in cities and in the nature.
We like to visit cities and we love to go skiing.
