Elf Garden owner and self-proclaimed seer Ragnhildur Jónsdóttir recently returned from a trip to New York City to help improve elf-human relations in Central Park, reports Vísir

Ragnhildur told Vísir that she travelled to New York with a few elves from her garden whom she claims are cheap and easy travel companions. 

“Yes a few elves and hidden people came with me,” Ragnhildur said. ”These are elves that work with me when I travel. Like if I travel to the country or go anywhere there is a specific group that always comes with me. The group was unusually large this time around but I think that was just curiosity. They just wanted to know what things look like [in New York].”

When asked if the elves sit in people’s laps during the flight, Ragnhildur said that no, they did not, but they did run about and explore the plane. 

“Some of the elves stayed as guests with the elves in Central Park while I held lectures and courses over there,” Ragnhildur said. “But we reunited and traveled back home together.”
