Norway Trip – August 7-17

scan_20170214

Last year, I was asked by some in this area with Norwegian ancestry to put together a trip to Norway. This summer, we are going! After looking around at different companies to help me, I decided Brekke Travel’s reputation and long history of leading trips to Norway was unsurpassed. They helped me put together this trip – the itinerary is one of their most popular and the price is great when you look at all that is included. Also, if you have ancestral places you would like to visit while we are there, Brekke can help you get to those places. I plan to see the homeplace of my great-grandparents on both my mother’s side and my father’s side while we are there! I would love to have you join us for this exceptional journey. For more information, message me at ruthehetland@gmail.com or call me at 254-265-5349. Let’s go to Norway!

  1. Hey there lovely lady!

    I’ll be living in Dublin at that time, and it’s just a wee little 2hr flight to Oslo and cheap to boot! Any chance I could pop over and join you for some of your journey? Perhaps they have a “land only for Lutherans” package. As always, it would be amazing to see you again.

    Hope you and Chad and the boys and any cats or dogs you may have are so, so well.

    Big love, Sarah

    1. Hi Sarah! Wouldn’t that be awesome – to meet up in Norway?! Would love that!!! Have you been there before? Do you think you could pop over from Dublin for ten days in August or do you think it would just be part of the time? I want to make a plan – would be so great to see you again. 🙂
