Our Travels this summer

We’ve finally gotten most of the little things taken care of for our trip this summer. We’ll be going to Norway again to see the grandkids. The nice part of this trip is that the kids will be going with us. It’s going to be a lot of fun. We are going to leave their house and travel up to the Atlantic Road. It’s an 8 kilometer road that goes over several islands and crosses the Atlantic Ocean. From the pictures I’ve seen so far it’s quite breathtaking.

We have other place to see too. We’ll stop in Dombas first, and get to see a bit of the area there. Then it’s on to Alesund. Alesund is a city that is built on three islands. It’s claim to fame is that it was destroyed in 1904 by a fire. After that, the town was rebuilt in Art Nouveau Style. I’ve seen pictures and it’s quite amazing. Hopefully I’ll get to take some more. The last stop is at the far end of the Atlantic road. We’ll be staying in a Rorbu which is the name for a fishing house. The house is right on the ocean, and looks great. Our reservation even says the house comes with a sauna so that will be nice. We get to spend 4 days there and I’ll hopefully get to do some fishing. From what I’ve heard, the fishing is supposed to be good there. We’ll just have to see.
