Norwegian Experience: Day 11

Thursday was the final day in Norway for Judy and her sister. After spending the better part of 2 weeks constantly on the go, our weary travelers finally had a morning to rest and sleep in as is befitting any true vacation. Judy spent the late morning going back to the Bryggens museum and packing before she and her sister traveled to Solstrand, which was a perfect way to close out the trip.

You see, this year's winner received an overnight stay at the Solstrand Hotel and Spa, where she and her guest were treated to relaxing scenery and complimentary spa treatments. From what I hear, the massages and facials were just what the doctor ordered. After that, the pair went out for some sightseeing.

They wandered around Solstrand, taking a lot of photos and enjoying the sights. Overall it was a very relaxing way to close out the trip.

And with that, the 2008 Norwegian Experience Recruitment Contest comes to a close. I hope you've enjoyed following Judy and her sister around Norway as much as I have. Stay tuned because I'll be doing a follow-up interview with Judy later in the week to recap her trip.

Don't forget: If you'd like your own Norwegian Experience, you can either enter to win this year's contest, or you can contact Borton Overseas to plan your own experience with a 5% discount for all Sons of Norway members!
