Norwegian Experience: Day 1

Well, I just got off the phone with Judy and it sounds like the last 24 hours have been very busy and very fun!

She flew out of Seattle yesterday at 6:45 p.m. and didn't arrive in Oslo until around 3:30 p.m. today. After taking time differences into account, that's nearly 12 hours of traveling. For most that would be a pretty grueling trip, but as the winner of the 2008 Norwegian Experience Recruitment Contest, Judy and her guest passed the time flying in SAS' Business Class.

After arriving in Oslo, a chauffeured car picked them up and whisked them to the famous Hotel Continental in the heart of Oslo. Then, after checking in, Judy and her guest made their way to the Oslo Harbor and walked along the pier, taking in the sights and sounds of the evening.

Judy had this to say about her time walking around Oslo "It was so wonderful walking down the street, the people were so nice and we felt so comfortable and safe!"

Sounds like she's having an awesome time so far. Tomorrow we'll hear all about Judy's morning tour of Oslo and her afternoon of leisure. Make sure to check back every day for updates!

The Norwegian Experience Recruitment Contest is a joint venture between Sons of Norway International and its partner Borton Overseas.
