In Iceland, all you need to send a letter is a stamp and some great map drawing skills!
When Rebecca Catherine Kaadu Ostenfeld received this cryptic envelope in the mail, she was surprised that the note had made it to her horse farm wher eshe lives with her husband and three children. The little farm is located near Búðardalur, in the west of Iceland - just as the map said.
Rather than a postal address, the sender wrote down as much information about the Kaadu Ostenfeld's location as they could remember. Some elements were written in English: "Country: Iceland. City: Búðardalur. Name: A horse farm with an Icelandic/Danish couple and three kids and a lot of sheep!"
One more clue was added to the envelope, "the Danish woman works in a supermarket in Búðardalur."
Now we're getting somewhere!
It turns out that the mystery letter had been sent from the capital, Reykjavik, by a tourist who had stayed at the farm. Incredibly, even though the forgetful visitor couldn't remember the address, the letter arrived at the right place!
The letter founds its way to the rightful hands in March, but didn't make news until May, when it was covered by the local Icelandic news website, Skessuhorn. According to their report, "anything is possible in Iceland." We believe you Iceland, you magical, frozen country.
