Norway Press Trip 2012
July 11th - 23rd - 2012

Beautiful Norway! Welcoming Norway! On this trip we visited Oslo, Molde, Geirangerfjord, Alesund, Bergen and Stavanger. We arrived into Oslo and departed Stavanger and in between were many highlights. The hotels chosen were all quite unique and in keeping with each of the places we visited. We met the local tourism people at each of the cities, had fantastic fresh and organic food (which I have included so you can see), drank the most delicious apple juice, ate the special pancakes they make with strawberries and cream, (didn’t eat the reindeer burgers or the whale meat). enjoyed travel on the Atlantic Road, travelled in cars, boats, buses (regular and coach), trains, trams, ships and planes. Rode the beautiful scenic Rauma Railway, spent a full day on a cruise through scenery that took your breath away from Hjorundfjord to Geirangerfjord, walked on peat so spongy you could bounce on it, visited community gardens through to roof and show gardens. Saw outstanding turf roofs and fields of lupins along the highways (did I take too many photographs?). We met with local gardeners, wandered through a Viking museum, saw some very unique sculpture, saw architecture like Art Nouveau to Rococo, walked through gorgeous parks filled with flowers and sides of the highways filled with wildflowers… It was incredible.

I share with you my memories of this beautiful country and its people….
