We can't agree more with Quora which wonderfully sums it up on Norway: 'If you breathe it in for too long, Norway becomes like a lover you meet many times in your life; sometimes you argue and sometimes just go through the world together in tranquility, but you miss her when away and the heart skips a beat seeing her again. She is full of secrets and complicated, but will lie to you and tell you she is just a simple girl from the countryside. Take the time to get to know her, and she will teach you a hell of a lot about yourself.'
Goodbye Norway. It out-lived my expectations. Many visa stamps still pending on my passport, but we definitely wish to see you again !!!
