Observation --> German pillows are awesome, especially after 24 hours of flying and a few German beers.
My Dad looked like he was going to complain about the 20 mile detour but I wasn’t going to be denied. I doubt I will ever go to Norway again so this was my one chance. We pulled up to the HRC and I darted in to get the glass while they waited in the car.
Wish we would have had more time there. It looks like a beautiful city. This is the National Theatre, right next to HRC.
Observation --> the older my parents get the crankier they get when they travel.
Now for the six hour drive from the east coast of Norway to the west coast. Please don't ask me why we didn't fly into Bergen instead of Oslo. My husband asked me that question so many times. I don't have an answer. And being the "Lemonade out of Lemons" kind of girl that I am I decided to make the best of it by enjoying the scenery.
Observation --> When your Dad disagrees about getting the minivan instead of the sedan, insist on the minivan.
Norway has three distinct regions, each characterized by unique landscapes, all of them beautiful. The eastern side of the country gently rises in elevation as you drive through beautiful green forests filled with pine trees.
