I first started visiting Norway with my parents almost 30 years ago, and since the age of 17 I have visited every single year – sometimes for a week, sometimes for a month, sometimes for even longer.
My Great Aunt, Pam, moved to Norway in the 1970s after marrying her Norwegian husband Asbjørn. Since she moved to Norway, my Mam & Dad, then myself and my brother Phil, have continued to visit.
One of the great things about each and every visit to Norway is that I get to spend time with all of the family that I have there. They’ve given me personal insight into how to ‘live like a Norwegian’ and explore everything that Norway has to offer, away from the hustle and bustle of busy tourist attractions.
I’ve indulged in traditional Norwegian food, been to places that typical tourists would never learn about, and even achieved a nationally recognised Norwegian language qualification.
If you’re planning to visit Norway in the near future then fill in the form below with your travel dates, where you are going and your general interests and I’ll happily send you a few hints and tips on how to get the most out of your time in Norway. Don’t forget to include your full address so that I can send you a postcard with my photo of Nidaros Cathedral along with a personal message.
I look forward to hearing from you!
