Letter sent to Iceland farm with hand-drawn map instead of address gets there anyway

A tourist who visited Iceland couldn't figure out what address to use to send a letter to someone, so they drew a map. Their letter was mailed to a farm in Hvammsveit, West Iceland, with a cute little drawing instead of an address, and the intended recipient still got it.

According to a local newspaper account, "this just proves anything is possible in Iceland."

In Iceland, this wonderful story made the rounds back in May. Today, it resurfaced on a Reddit thread on August 30, captioned "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 includes country, village name, and "A horse farm with an Icelandic/Danish couple and three kids and a lot of sheep."

On the lower right hand corner, "The Danish woman works in a supermarket in Búðardalur."

From Conde Nast Traveler:

The letter was mailed in Reykjavík by a tourist who had visited the Hólar farm earlier in the year, but couldn't seem to find an exact address, according to West Iceland news service Skessuhornið. 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. It does have an address, but when you search for the one listed on its Facebook page, you're placed smack dab in the middle of a lake.
