Our street is very quiet and also the neighbourhood. There are grocery stores, bakeries, restaurants, swimmingpool, sport centers and a spa close by. Its also easy to find a bus stops. Our house is about 800m from Laugardalur park.
In Laugardalur you will find a youth hostel, a campsite, and the largest outdoor thermal pool in Reykjavík, Laugardalslaug, in which you can swim all year round. Laugardalur also boasts a beautiful botanical garden featuring an impressive selection of Arctic flowers and plants. Beneath the branches of a leafy grove in the gardens you'll find the lovely Café Flora.
The Family Park and Zoo in Laugardalur is open all year. The Zoo includes most Icelandic animals, both wild and domesticated, from foxes, reindeer and seals to cattle, horses and sheep. In summer the Family Park offers many rides and play equipment for children of all ages. It is also very good place for walking,cycling and jogging.
I work as a full-time theacher and my wife is a midwife and nurse and works in the labour ward in Landspitalinn. We have three girls. They are 18, 16 and 11 years old.
