Relaxing after dinner in the Minni-Mástanga farmhouse living room

(Post 5 of 5)

After a dinner of lamb, potatoes, cabbage and the most delicious gravy, the family at Minni-Mástunga crashes out. Mom is the decorator around here. She loves fabric and has made over 300 quilts – as well as helping with the farm, raising six kids and caring for foster children as well.

The atmosphere in this home is so relaxed. We feel accepted right away and the evening evolves from a meal to a quilt show to a dance party. It’s hard to leave.

This Icelandic welcome will stay in our minds for a very long time.
