Desperate Man Without Address Draws Map On Envelope Instead, And It Gets Delivered

An Iceland tourist didn’t have the address of the person he was sending a letter to, but luckily, he had a good memory.

So, instead of  putting an address on the envelope, he drew a map which leads to a farm in Hvammsveit, West Iceland, with a red dot marked on the destination. The envelope reads: ‘Country: Iceland. City: Búðardalur. Name: A horse farm with an Icelandic/Danish couple and three kids and a lot of sheep!’. It also has a little clue in the corner saying that ‘the Danish woman works in a supermarket in Búðardalur.’ How cute!

(h/t: distractify)

This Icelandic tourist didn’t know the address but had a good memory

And, according to a local newspaper, Skessuhornið, it still reached the intended destination!

Given the perfectly memorized location, would a reverse search on a map tool ("What address is here?") have worked? Nice story nonetheless.
