Letter Delivered Despite No Name, No Address

A letter was delivered to the farmers at Hólar in Hvammsveit, West Iceland, at the end of March, although it included neither the recipients’ names nor their address, according to the West Iceland news service Skessuhornið. Instead, the sender had drawn a map on the envelope, showing the rough location of the unnamed farm, along with a brief description of the family living there.

This is all the information the mailman had to go by:

Country: Iceland, City: Búðardalur, Name: A horse farm with an Icelandic/Danish couple and three kids and a lot of sheep. An additional clue in the lower right hand corner read, “The Danish woman works in a supermarket in Búðardalur.”

The letter was mailed in Reykjavík by foreign tourist who had visited the farm earlier. They weren’t sure the letter would be delivered, but stated that if it did, that would prove that in Iceland, anything is possible.
