The Journey to Norway
It took us 22 hours to get from Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, to Torp, Sandefjord, Norway. Our final destination via car was Toensberg, Norway.
Our trip included flights from Cincinnati to Altanta, Atlanta to Amsterdam (a very long flight), and Amsterdam to Torp, Norway. Most of the long portion of the flight was at night, but it was difficult to sleep.
It was Delta and KLM all the way. The most comfortable flight was the last one between Amsterdam and Torp.
Off in the distance, you can see windmills in Amsterdam, It was also interesting to see our altitude on the monitor when we landed. We were 8 meters below sea level.
As we flew into airspace over Southern Norway, we spotted a Royal Caribbean ship sailing out of Oslo Fjord. We had to zoom to get this, so the quality is not great, but the ship is unmistakably an RCCL ship.
As we descended to the approach to Torp, the lush green of Norwegian farms came into view.
