Lifestyle

We spend much of our free time outdoors, walking, swimming, hiking, gardening. We like to travel, abroad and around Iceland. We also sing in a choir and we like all sorts of musical events and theatre. Reading good books is also on the favorite list and spending time with our family and grandchildren. Our main free time for the last years has been dedicated to building a summerhouse in the far northwest of Iceland, where we love to stay. The summerhouse may be available as part of our home exchange.
