In Iceland, a Hand-Drawn Map Is as Good as an Address

From Conde Nast Traveler:

A picture of this peculiar piece of mail popped up on a Reddit thread on August 30 with the caption, “Without an address, an Icelandic tourist drew this map of the intended location (Búðardalur) and surroundings on the envelope. The postal service delivered!” The envelope included the country, village name, and the line “A horse farm with an Icelandic/Danish couple and three kids and a lot of sheep.” There was also an additional identifier on the lower right hand corner that read, “The Danish woman works in a supermarket in Búðardalur.”

The farm is considered a small tourist attraction in the area as it boasts a “mini zoo” where the owners encourage visitors to pet their horses, goats, sheep, pigs, and other animals.
