European: Norwegian Outreach

(NEW SITE) betcha! Hallo-Hello in Norwegian! A popular Norwegian line I've learned after living in rural Morris, Minne-sota!

When I (Sal)think of Norwegians, I automatically think of the Vikings-not just the football team, but the actual barbarians from medieval times!

A co-worker (Heidi) of mine is very proud of her Norwegian heritage. She has taught me a lot about this country. Just recently (Tuesday, January 24th of 2007), she shared with me of her visits (3x so far) to her grandparents' homeland. Most of her relatives live in Stavanger (virtual photos).

In the middle of the night, Ollie woke up and saw they were surrounded 50 hungry, ferocious wolves. He said to Sven, "Wake us Sven, We're rich!" -John Jenkins, Jamestown, TN

    Norway: The Most Beautiful Country in World

    "I haven't been to Norway yet but someday I will move there. Here is a slide show dedicated to the most beautiful country on Earth.
    This video shows beautiful scenes of Bergen, Oslo, Stavanger, Lofoten, Finnmark (my favorite), traditional Norwegian hytte, Trondheim, Hammerfest, Sami (Lapps), Kristiansand and many more.
    I spent hours trying to get everything just right like the symbolism, so if you open up you'll find a lot of symbolism. One of them would be that the flag after the mountains shows that Norway is a strong country.
    P.S Sorry for the bad quality the file is too big"
