Modern times can be awfully busy and cluttered. Now and then it's important to find a quiet place where your thoughts can be gathered and you can rest and reset your body and soul. Islands, for an example, are good places for such relaxation.
Recently our editors stayed at a cottage in Flatey, a magical Icelandic island in the fjord Breiðarfjörður. The island is rather small, only two kilometers long and about one kilometer wide, of which most is flat land (hence its name, meaning "flat island" in Icelandic). Most houses in Flatey are occupied only during summer but during winter, the island's total population is six people.
The natural life in Flatey is amazing; you can wake up and find a curious sheep peeking through your bedroom window and lie around at the cliffs looking at the puffins fly (remember to bring a helmet, a pot or a long stick if it is during the arctic terns' nesting season).
If you are planning a trip to Iceland, you should seriously consider visiting Flatey.
