........................................................................................................................................................................................WHO IS MONIQUE ?

Monique and Emilie just before the start of the INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER expedition in 2009.

I met Monique on my first expedition to Iceland in 2009, drawn by this Frenchwoman who had made Iceland her home, as well as by the very central location of her guesthouse.
The least I can say is that I wasn't disappointed! Quite apart from her comfortable guesthouse, I discovered a real character, a woman of infinite courage who'll move mountains to please her guests.
Her own Icelandic saga began in 1970, when a French diplomat she was working for as an au pair was posted to Reykjavik and she decided to come too. The diplomat moved on, but Monique stayed, enchanted by this island at the edge of the world (which was not yet the travel destination it is today). So she's one of the few French people to know the country so well. She speaks perfect Icelandic, and has a rich knowledge of Iceland's history, people and traditions.
Monique is well known in Reykjavik, loved and respected by all, and I admit that I'm quite attached to her, beyond the simple pleasure of seeing her again whenever I go there. Constantly bubbling with projects and plans, always there to help me find contacts when I need them, Monique has become a real asset and a true friend.
