During our entire eight day trip to Norway, we only ate at three restaurants for a total of three meals. Everything was either closed, insanely overpriced, or unappealing. That means we lived off of snacks and were starving the majority of the time. We devoured our meals on the Hurtigruten, and Pepe’s Pizza at the airport filled a very...

We found ourselves in Kirkenes after debarking from our two night cruise on the Hurtigruten. Kirkenes is a tiny little town of only 3,000 inhabitants on just over 500 acres, and was upgraded from a village just 20 years ago!

Scandinavian Airlines, SAS Airlines, flies throughout Denmark, Sweden and Norway to 1300 destinations all across Europe. Their slogan, “We Are Travelers” is fitting as Scandinavians travel an average of five times a year throughout the three countries listed above! It was also fitting for our particular family as we are not only travelers, but have Scandinavian ancestry. Everything comes...
