Greetings from Norway! Just a short post. Today we took the ferry through the fjords. It was beautiful but cold! In Norway "hey" means "hello". It really threw me off the first couple of times. I just thought, what a casual, friendly place!

Anyhow, my husband did his 21k, 1500m bike race up a fjord on Saturday while I did the 16k, 1000m hike. They were both a challenge, but the weather was just gorgeous and I should get the prize for the most photos taken while hiking!

Everything here is very expensive. Tonight we are staying in a hostel which has the equivalent price of a night at the Westin in the US. Crazy. A six pack of beer from the grocery store costs 30 USD. Etc.

Anyhow, just a quick link to my article in the Monitor in case you are interested and didn't find it before.


Will catch up with more stories from Norway and Europe in a few days.
