Kira and Min
We are privileged to have all that we really need in our home, so if you'd rather provide the gift of an experience than a physical gift, this is the place for you... Our plan is to travel through Norway during the summer of 2015, and we'll send you a thank-you post card from the part of our voyage that you made possible!Trondheim, Norway Oslo, Norway Alesund, Norway Bergen, Norway Norway
Oslo is the first stop on our journey, and we'll stay here for two nights as we explore the city and recover from jet lag...
During our time in Oslo, we'll wander through the collection at the National Museum of Art, Architecture, and Design.

From Ålesund, we'll take a shuttle to Åndalsnes and then for a beautiful train ride to Trondheim.
Kira had breakfast at the Rica Nidelven Hotel back in 2012, and she's been longing to repeat the experience ever since. This is breakfast magic at its best...we only wish we could send you a plate ...
From Trondheim, we'll head even further north to Bodø--our first destination above the Arctic Circle!
Trains only get us so far. In order to explore the Lofoten islands, we will need a car.
You really can't go to Norway without visiting a viking museum...
During most of our time in Lofoten, we'll be staying in a friend's home (thanks, Sidsel!), but we'd really love to spend one night in a traditional 'fishermen's cabin' or rorbu. The hiking around N...
We won't be able to take beautiful photos of Norwegian landscapes until we replace our stolen camera equipment. This gift will help us remember our whole trip from start to finish.
