    I would love to visit Norway someday. I descend on my maternal grandmother’s side and my father’s side from William the Conqueror, and, of course, his Viking ancestors, including Rollo. My maternal grandfather was Ole Thorsteinsson Hanson. His parents were from Vaga in the Gudbrandsdal.

  3. It is very expressive country, so you need money, don’t take in your pocket more than 2500 Euro cash, they will take in the custom the extra money. I lost 1000 Euro, it was ” welkome to Norway”
