Time Travel

When I was visiting Dýrafjörður recently, I was fortunate enough to get an private guided tour to the an untouched home of Sigtryggur Guðlaugsson and Hjaltlína Guðjónsdóttir, who were, among other things, the founders of Skrúður, the famous horticultural museum garden in Núpur, Dýrafjörður.
