Tur igennem Skandinavia....A Trip through Scandinavia

Den Nørgaard-klan tager afsted i dag.... på en tur igennem Skandinavia.

The Nørgaard-crew is leaving today.... on a trip through Scandinavia.


Husk-- Skandinavia laves af kun 3 lande--Danmark, Norge og Sverige. Du kan huske dette fordi Københavns Fonds Børsen har en spir på toppen med 3 hunde.... en hund som repræsenterer hver skandinavisk land.

Remember--Scandinavia is made up of only 3 countries--Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. You can remember this because Copenhagen´s Stock Exchange has a spire on top of it with 3 dogs....one dog to represent each Scandinavian country.
Denne tur er ekstra speciel fordi det vil bringe os til Amy-- min veninde som er en Texan pige, bor i Norge. Vi mødte igennem vores blogs og har blevet rigtige gode "elektroniske" veninder men i morgen, vil vores elektronisk venskab blive "ægte"! :o)

This trip is extra-special because it will bring us to Amy--my friend who is a Texas girl, living in Norway. We met through our blogs and have become great "electronic" griends, but tomorrow, our electronic friendship will become "real"!! :o)

Dette kort viser vores ruteplan fra Herning til Amy. Vi vil kører til Frederikshavn DK (2 timer) og tage færge til Gøteborg, Sverige (3 timer) og kører nordvest imod Hamer (som ligger imellem Lillehammer og Oslo), Norge (5 timer). Jess er ikke så glad for den lange tur i bilen men hun er en "god sport" fordi hun ved hvordan spændt jeg er at besøge Amy og kører igennem sydlig Sverige og Norge. (Vi havde muligheden at tage færge direkte til Oslo, men det tager 8.5 timer, det er meget dyrt og du kan ikke se landskabet langs med vejen...så kører vi!)


This map shows our route from Herning to Amy. We will drive to Frederikshavn DK (2 hours), take the ferry to Gøteborg, Sweden (3 hours) and then drive northwest toward Hamer (which is between Lillehammer and Oslo), Norway (5 hours). Jess is not so excited about such a long trip in the car, but she is being a good sport because she knows how excited I am to visit Amy and to drive through southern Sweden and Norway. (We could have chosen to take the ferry directly Oslo, but it takes 8.5 hours, it is much more expensive, and you cannot see any of the landscape along the highways....so we will drive!)
Min blog har bragt så mange søde mennesker til mit liv og jeg føler meget heldig at være så forbindet til så mange.... Vi sad omkring vores spisebord i søndags sammen med Jess, Patti og hendes mand, Ole så vi snakkede og grinede i mange timer og følte ligesom gamle venner, og jeg tænkte på hvor forbløffende det er at en lille blog kunne lave så stærk venskaber.....Jeg er sikker på at jeg vil tænke den samme ting så vi sidder omkring Amys spisebord med sin familie denne weekend! Jeg er meget taknemmelig for blogging! Måske vi ses på vejen i dag....3 lande i en dag!

My blog has brought so many sweet people into my life, and I feel so fortunate to be so connection to so many..... We sat around our kitchen table this past Sunday together with Jess, Patti and her husband, Ole as we chatted and laughed for several hours, feeling just like old friends, and I thought about how amazing it is that a little blog could make such strong friendships..... And I am certain that I will think the same thing as we sit around Amy´s kitchen table with her family this weekend! I am so thankful for blogging! Maybe we will see you out on the roads today.....3 countries in one day!
