Today is a bittersweet day for us because it's our last day in Norway. We love everything about this country, from the stunning natural scenery to the beautiful people. The culture here is kind, clean, organized and efficient. Every single bus, plane, boat and train left precisely on time. We would pull onto a ferry and it would be moving ten seconds later - no joke! They really have a lot figured out here.
The people are just as wonderful. Every single person with whom we interacted was friendly and helpful. They never begrudged our use of English and general Americanness.
Of course, we've gone on and on about the natural scenery for a reason. There were many times as we were riding or driving through the countryside when we were both left speechless. We think we took some good pictures, but photos never capture the true essence of a place, do they? Maybe that's the universe's way of encouraging us to get out and experience life firsthand. We're sure glad we did.
The photo below is the last one of us in Norway. It was taken from Ørnesvingen ("Eagle's Bend"), overlooking Geirangerfjord.
Thanks for the memories, Norway. We love you! Tonight we fly to Rome!!
