Norway

NOT MUCH BETTER THAN NORWAY

Ah Norway. The big brother of the Scandinavian siblings. To me, Norway is like the tall, athletic hulky older brother who braves Arctic temperatures and winters without light while running up mountains with kids on his back to all ski down; he believes that every problem can be solved simply by going outside.

For me, beautiful rugged Norway might be one of the beautiful countries in the world. Mountains plunge into cold, clear waters where orcas swim and cod are plenty. There are fjords to find and fjells to follow. Get ready to be awed. It’s truly awesome.
