This amazing tale was first reported by a media website, “Skessuhorn,” in Iceland. According to the report, a letter was delivered to Rebecca Cathrine Kaad Ostenfeld despite not having a name or a postal address.
No Name or Address
Mrs. Ostenfeld was surprised by the letter because all it had on the cover was:
Name: A horse farm with an Icelandic/Danish couple and 3 kids and a lot of sheep!
A Hand Drawn Map
Next was a hand drawn map in blue, green, and red ink.
The last statement was a clue, “the Danish woman works in a supermarket in Búðardalur. Takk Fyrir (Thank You)!”
The post was delivered in March of 2016 and reported a month later by Skesshorn.
The letter was written, and the map drawn, by a foreign tourist who had stayed at the farm who then traveled to the Icelandic capitol of Reykjavik during their tour of the country. And like many tourists, they had not committed the family name or the address to memory. But they knew where it was located by landmarks.
Anything Is Possible In Iceland
In reporting the story, Skesshorn reported that the tourists weren’t sure the map would pay off. But if it did, it “would then prove that Iceland was the coolest country on earth and that anything was possible in Iceland.”
Iceland is a “cool” place.
