Postie Delivered This Letter Based On A Tourist's Map Instead Of An Address

An Icelandic tourist's letter has gone viral after the person drew a map on the envelope instead of writing an address.

Because he/she was unable to recall the address, the tourist drew a basic map with the intended destination, which was a farm in the north-western village of Búðardalur, near Hólar, in northern Iceland, and it was marked using a red dot.

It reads: 'Country: Iceland. City: Búðardalur. Name: A horse farm with an Icelandic/Danish couple and three kids and a lot of sheep!'

The letter also included some basic information about the intended recipient, describing her as: "the Danish woman who works in a supermarket in Búðardalur."

What's more, the letter reached its intended destination, according to Skessuhornið.

Once it got to the local post office, I'm guessing the conversation must have gone something like this: 'Ah, that must be Danish Danish Anna'.

'Yeah yeah - the only Danish person for 80 miles. You know the farm she stays at, right'.

'Absolutely Gylfi'.

Fair play to the postman for working this one out. That said, it's not quite the same as finding someone in central Tokyo.
