This morning, after two weeks of exploring Norway, my parents boarded their flight to return to Canada. We had such a great time and I think it's safe to say, my guests were smitten with our adopted country.
It's obvious that we love having family and friends near but there's also something to be said for seeing our home through fresh eyes. We explored new parts of the region that we hadn't yet seen and we revisited favourite spots with renewed energy and a sense of pride in our home. My Mom and Dad were able to see us thriving in this location and we watched their wide eyes as they took in the beauty of Norway.
It was an honour to welcome them on their first transcontinental trip and I hope this opens the door for more visits down the road!
Thanks for coming Mom & Dad - you're welcome to visit anytime!
