Isn't it good, Norwegian Wood
Trip to Norway, July 2004
Two years ago, I took one of the best trips I have ever taken in my life, to one of the most beautiful places on Earth: we went by motorcycle up through Germany and Denmark, then by ferry over to Norway. We drove about a third of the way up, crossed over into Sweden, and drove back down to Denmark, and then home. Every turn of the road brought a breath-taking view. I was so overwhelmed by the scenery at times that I had tears in my eyes.

I fully intended to write about this trip... but various circumstances conspired for that not to happen right after we returned, nor in the month, and then years, after. And now, I think I've accepted that I'm just never going to do it. Which is sad because, as, as I said, it's one of the best trips I've ever taken, maybe the best. The natural beauty of that country is absolutely staggering, and the cabin system they use for accommodations is one I wish all countries would adopt.

So I'll just offer a few tips:
