Off to Norway!
I'm in the throes of packing my bag, getting my house in order, and learning how to write a blog post using my brand new Samsung Galaxy tablet. (It's taken me about 10 minutes to figure out this much. My next task is getting the photo to display.)
On Sunday I fly to Norway to see where my great grandmother Bergit was born and where she spent the first 17 years of her life before she sailed to America with her parents. Actually, for the first week I will be in the region of Valdres, where her mother's ancestors came from. The second week, I'll travel over the mountains to Bergit's birthplace in the region of Hallingdal.
