I guess Norway is anxious for us to come and has already booked the choir to sing at several 1,000 year old cathedrals.
We will spend a day skiing at Lillehammer (home of the 1994 Winter Olympics) as well!
We will stop in several major cities and tiny villages along our 9 day tour and finish in Copenhagen. It's a bit surreal for me and I'm more excited then I can possibly tell. Hunter's Great-Grandfather, Henry Hagen is Norwegian and his Father and Mother immigrated from Norway in the early 1900's. I know this will be an awesome experience for her and I, the travel freak that I am, will love it too. I spent some time this morning going through geneology looking at names of ancestors as well as the cities they came from to see if we will be traveling through any of those locations.
I can't wait to learn more about the "Land of the Midnight Sun". I know I will be packing winter clothes, that's for sure! I know my dollar won't go far with the krone (NOK), especially since their ecomony is fairing much better than ours, but I'm excited for the scenery and history! We will actually visit the tiny island of Finnoy, where it is thought that the last of the Vikings lived.
I offered for Boyd to go with Hunter, since he is part Norwegian, I thought he would like to go and visit...but he declined and so that leaves me to chaperone! Yeah for me!! Now, if I can just stay focused until next March!! I'm soooo looking foward!!!
