After we decided to move to Paris, I was determined to get to Norway within the year. Norway is an important place for me. Like many Minnesotans, I have some Norwegian heritage. While part of the trip would be exploring where that part of my family came from (which I’ll get to in a later post), we also wanted to see as much of the country’s natural beauty as possible. And attempting to see the Northern Lights was at the top of the list, which meant heading above the Arctic Circle.
