Claude reporting from Balestrand, Norway!

C: Can I say just what a JOY it is to stay in a hotel! Hostels are not uncomfortable, but it is so nice to be pampered by room service and free breakfast! (Norway is super expensive!) In actuality, the hotel feels like a bed and breakfast. It is so homey and the owner took … Continue reading

7 Hours to Bergen…Farvel Oslo!

I appreciate that from the language makers/linguists of the world. Dr. McGrath’s fancy camera took some amazing stills on the train to Bergen. However, you will have to do with … Continue reading

Robbers also exist in Scandinavia….

He is last year’s contestant winner of Denmark’s X-Factor and is absolutely an amazing musician, song writer and performer.

The Sacking of Roskilde

(T): The day began with a roll out of bed from the previous’ night’s festivities, out meeting new friends in far away places. We got on a train to Roskilde, which is about 30 minutes outside of Copenhagen. The ride was through some of the nicest countryside I’ve ever been witness to, green and lush, with … Continue reading

A Castle on the Lake…

Hello again!
