Norway Travel Guide and Archives

Norway Travel Guide Archives Image

Norway has been on our travel wish list for years, and yet always seemed to elude us until Summer 2017.

A housesitting assignment came up in Oslo, which let us spend 12 days in one of the most expensive cities in the world…without having to pay for accomodation! After exploring Oslo as much as we could, we hit the road and visited the central-west region of Norway, where there are fjords galore and gorgeous drives.

After that first trip, Norway has graduated to the list of countries we want to return to! There’s simply so much to see and do – Norway deserves more than one visit.
