Fantastic Norway...



Just got back today from my marvellous holiday in Norway. We had fantastic weather and this photo shows the view from the balcony where I practised my yoga every morning and did knitting most of the day....so lovely to relax while my sons played with the family we were staying with. I have ate reindeer, moose and even tried a little bit of whale! I made some boller which is a type of Norsk cake bread and my 7yr old caught a 1.5kg cod on his first fishing trip. The last night my sons even camped out in a teepee and I was very proud of myself for swimming in the freezing cold waters of a fjord. Will post lots of photos here soon ..such a beautiful country.

I've eaten moose, reindeer (caribou) and chewed on some muktuk too but I've never been to Norway. sounds like a glorious vacation and kudos to you for fitting yoga into it. I'm hard pressed to make that happen when I'm traveling.
