Seems my computer's excited it's in Norway! It also seems I'm revealing my super top-secret all-time views number, which I know you're all soooo jealous of. Some people get 8,533 views per day. Some get 8,533 views per decade. I hope I'm not inadvertently revealing important identifying information with that picture; my terrible memory of what information is typically listed on that page tells me I'm not, though.
But who cares about that, because I'm in Norway! One more Ahhhhh!! The flight blew pretty much as hard as I thought it would, but I made it in one piece. I fell into bed the second I got to my hotel room and woke up four hours later in a panic with my room phone ringing. I had made plans to meet someone to tour the town and get dinner and my alarm clock had obviously not gone off two hours ahead of time as I had intended. So I guess that means my phone alarm clock DOES NOT work here. Oops. Good thing I figured that out now.
Anyway, just checking in. It is beautiful here (I'm in Alta, waaaay up north), very similar to Alaska but with more rounded hills than jagged peaks. Also, Oslo looked a lot like Vermont, only covered in pine trees. I'm excited to go back there in a few days.
Running has obviously not happened. I might try to go outside for a run tomorrow, but I'm kicking myself for not bringing my Yaktrax. Seems Alaska isn't the only place that still has snow! There is a nice paved trail that follows the main road through town and leads to beautiful ocean views, so if it's not too slippery that's where you'll find me tomorrow morning (assuming I figure out a way to wake myself up - maybe I'll go extra posh and see if I can get a wake-up call).
I'll be sure to keep you krazy kids updated, if I can!
