The journey actually started way before purchasing a plane ticket. Once I found out I was going to be going to Norway my companies division for global travel set off on the arduous task of determining whether or not I was going to need a work visa. This took about a month and a half, or maybe two, I don't know haha it just felt like an excruciating amount of time. During this waiting period I was fortunate enough to have very gracious friends that let me stay at their pad on their couch. These are also the same gracious people that are willing to look after my pup. Thank you James, Kayla, and Ryan! Once I finally knew I was going we had a final supper at Farm Burger which was everything one could want in a true american meal.
|The final supper! Bacon, Peperjack, jalepeno, lettuce burger with a chocolate shake and sweet potato fries.|
|Had to pay off my last parking ticket to get this sucker. You win this time UF Parking.|
|Hey we are passing right over Bergen!|
|Its like $6.50 USD, and I wonder who neck beard is.|
|American's don'y even eat Pizza Hut....|

Over the Mainland (Notice how its hard to tell snow covered ground from clouds):
|Oh look a ship!|
|Land of Fjords!|
Once I landed in bergen I just had to wait for my luggage and Hail a cab. Fortunately one of the things I was able to secure while waiting a long amount of time to get to Norway was to secure furnished housing before my arrival. So thankfully I was able to drive straight to my awaiting apartment. Rent is not cheap but I feel like it was worth it. Oh and did I mention that the bathroom has heated floors?!?
|Yeah those floors are heated...|
