Preparing for the Trip to Norway

December 21, 2012 | Filed Under Uncategorized | Comments Off

Norway is a beautiful country with a lot of beautiful people and a lot of beautiful things to see. It’s really a trip of a lifetime, which is why you want to make sure you do everything right. You must properly prepare for the trip so that you remember Norway for all the right reasons.

Below are a few ideas to help you thoroughly prepare for an experience you won’t soon forget:

1.) Get the home squared away. You plan on coming back, right? Make sure you arrange to have your mail withheld until you return or have a neighbor gather it for you while you are away. If you let those things stack up, you’re pretty much telling the world you aren’t home. Might also be a good time to look into a home security system if you haven’t already. Sites like Securitychoice.com are a great start.

2.) Learn some of the language. Do you even know what language they speak in Norway? Sure, it’s Norwegian, but there are two kinds: bokmal and nynorsk and it depends where you are which one is appropriate. You don’t need to be fluent in the dialect to have a good time, but it might be nice to know how to ask for things and get peoples’ attention.

3.) Purchase a travel journal. There are plenty out there and they not only help you document exciting happenings on your travels, but they also provide interesting information as well. You can find decently priced travel journals specifically for Norway in most major bookstores and, if all else fails, there is still Amazon.
