1. Why Iceland? Your first memory related to Iceland.

I moved to Iceland because of my Icelandic ex-boyfriend and our two kids who are also the reason why I’m staying here. I remember in the late 90s I was friends with two super beautiful Icelandic sisters, who dressed like out of a 60s magazine and they were also groupies. They were cool, and so I thought Iceland must be as well.

2. What are you doing here?

I am working in my guesthouse and also freelancing as a conceptual designer. Working with Icelanders I learned that there is no deadline until the last moment.

3. What do you like the most about Iceland? What are the disadvantages of Iceland?

I love Iceland for being so stupidly small, but I also hate it for the same reason sometimes.

4. Is Iceland a good country to stay in for a long time?

Iceland is a safe place and a nice country to stay for a long time because Icelanders are friendly and I love when they talk Danish to me.

5.  What is your favourite Icelandic word?

My favorite Icelandic word is Òmægot.
