“No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.” – Lin Yutang
After spending a good 6 months in Stavanger we are ready to say goodbye to our temporary home. Since the hockey season is over we get to go “home” for the summer. Safe to say I will miss all of the beautiful scenic views, amazingly fresh seafood and bread, cute houses, coffee shops, Sabi sushi (my favorite) , narrow streets and more.
I won’t be missing Sunday’s when everything is closed and there is nothing to do, the expensive prices (compared to North America) or the fact that you cannot drink while watching the hockey game (this is huge for us Americans/ Canadians)… how can you watch a game and not drink right?!
We were so fortunate to call this wonderful place “home” for half the year, experience all of its beauty and great quality of life. Norway was ranked as the number one place to live in so we can say we got lucky. Here are a few pictures of our most memorable moments… enjoy!
The one regret I have is not taking a boat tour across the fjords and not being able to see the Northern Lights!
If you are short on time and would like to see some of Norway while using different kinds of transportation check out this article on Go Nomad ! It is considered to be the most popular tour in Norway.
