If you are looking for an English speaking country with fresh and delicious food, commitment to environmental preservation and gorgeous scenery, Norway is a natural choice.

With a Norwegian husband I’m fortunate to get an inside glimpse of this gorgeous country. I took an absolutely phenomenal journey to experience some of the beauty and wonder of Norway and can’t wait to share with you!

My journey kicks off with a look at the Northern Lights, and then will take us through the picturesque Lofoten Islands. An overnight stay in a fisherman’s cottage is next, and then a leisurely drive.

We’ll then go up to the frozen tundra of Svalbard, which is an arctic archipelago about halfway between continental Norway and the North Pole.
