Most Memorable Travel Experience

I sure haven’t been a world traveler, but among my most memorable travel moments have been spending time at friends’ and families’ cabins. There’s something about being on the water, in the great outdoors, and enjoying the simple times of meals and conversation that always has had me feeling refreshed and renewed.

Most Recent Trip

I traveled to Norway and Sweden. I didn’t think I would ever cross the ocean, but I did and boy am I glad.  I was missing out on a whole world.  I also didn’t think I was much of a history person or that I would have much interest in museums.  Again, completely wrong.  The Vasa Museum in Stockholm, with its massive ship and it’s history, was fascinating.

Bergen, in Norway, was hands down my favorite city that I have visited.  The small town feel, the fishing boats, the old shore houses, and of course, the funicular.  Definitely a must see. From here, I took a cruise through the fjords and stayed in Flam.  The views of the fjords are breathtaking, and that barely describes it.  The trip was something that I will never forget and am grateful to have experienced in my lifetime.
