Where you’ll be

Akureyri, Iceland

We are just minutes away from the town center, shops and restaurants. Whale watching is just around the corner and so is our cultural center Hof. Walking distance to the mall is about ten minutes.
Our part of town is the second oldest. Walking around the neighborhood is relaxing and gives you a feeling of being in a small village. You can also enjoy walking by the seashore from close to our house and all the way to the airport if you like.

My birth name is Jóhanna María Elena, but most people call me Hannela. I am currently working on my M.A. in Tourism and teaching business and accounting subjects at my university and sometimes other schools. I have degrees in Tourism, Business and Accounting, and Event Management. I also have an interest in Intercultural Communication and Humanities. I am a nature lover and I enjoy outdoor life and camping and am quite conservative when it comes to consumption. Curling is my sport and I really enjoy attending multinational bonspiels where I can meet people from all over the world. I have been off the ice for a while though following an injury. Most of my life I have been involved in multi- or international work somehow and I see the whole world as my home because I feel at home where ever I go, and I respect and care for every place as my home. Many times I bring a piece of a place I visit home with me, not in objects but rather in ways of going about my life and my habits. My children are no different from me and are very open minded and globally thinking. My husband is from Algeria, he has a MA in Arabic literature but doesn´t get a lot of chances working in his field here in Iceland so he works other jobs. I guess we can honestly say we have a multilingual, multicultural family. I joined Airbnb to bring the world to me and me to the world and I think this is a great way to meet people from all over. I have been a host and a traveler on Airbnb for several years now. My motto is to make each day count and be the best I can be, do good if I get a chance to, and be thankful for the gifts life brings. Namaste

During your stay
Staying with us is easy going and usually there is someone around. If you want some information on the area or need any help we´ll do our best to help you out so please send us an inquiry when you make your reservation or you can contact us while you stay.
We are a family of four, me and my husband live in the house and then I have two grown kids who have moved away but are sometimes with us. Then of course there is Thomas the cat who must qualify as the fifth family member. The family may be busy during the summer and some of us will be travelling at times so it might vary who of us will be home or away from home when you stay with us. We look forward to meeting you and hope you will enjoy your stay with us :)
