Learn About Travel In Norwegian

I don’t know about you but I like to travel. Many a times I enjoy the journey even more than the destination. I was fortunate enough to get an opportunity to travel to Norway and found it fascinating. The natural beauty there has to been seen to be experienced.

It seemed like most Norwegians liked to plan holidays and travel whether it is to the mountains (or the Alps) to ski or to the southern parts of Europe (or Asia) to enjoy the weather. So the next time you get an opportunity to cook up a conversation with a Norwegian, make sure to bring up the subject of travel and in most cases you will not get disappointed.
