Norwegian Experience Trip Day 1

It's 8:30 a.m., here at the Sons of Norway Headquarters in Minneapolis, MN. That means the 2007 Norwegian Experience winner, Marcia Stein ought to be landing in Bergen, Norway right about now. At this point Marcia and her traveling companions have spent the last 12 hours flying; I'm sure they are very tired, but also very excited about the days that lay ahead.

Luckily tonight is an off-night for them, so they'll have a chance to rest up, grab some dinner at Hotel Havnekontoret's supper buffet. Tomorrow, though, the excitement truly begins. Marcia and her party will begin their day with a traditional Norwegian smorgasbord breakfast at the hotel before embarking on a private, guided walking tour of Bergen. They will stroll through the historic area of Bryggen, visit the Fish Market and go all the way to the top of Mt. Fløien for a spectacular view of the city below.

After that, Marcia will have the rest of the day free to explore more of Bergen and all the wonders it holds.

Check back tomorrow for more updates on Marcia Stein, Sons of Norway's 2007 Norwegian Experience Winner, and her trip of a lifetime!
