Godt nytt år fra Bergen, Norge!

For New Years, I set off to Bergen, Norway to spend it with my boyfriend.  While I wasn’t in the tropics, it was still a nice change of pace from the hustle and bustle of my typical week.  I had the amazing opportunity to spend New Years Eve with this family and eat some typical Norwegian food, which was actually quite delightful.  I had my first experience with Aquavit, Sheepribs, mashed Kålrabi (I think it might be called kålrabistappe or something??), Julebrus, Red cabbage, all on New Years Eve.  I learned that New Years is the only time in Norway when fireworks are permitted (can you imagine how a law like that would go over in the fireworks capital of the world, the USA???)  And I also learned that Norwegian beer is much heavier and potent than American beer LOL.

Nevertheless, my New Years was quite perfect.  Ideal start to 2011!

    So nice that you’re back! I’ve missed your blog and your sweet comments on my blog. So glad to hear that you had a nice new years eve. The beer that the guy in the first picture is holding (your bf maybe?) is actually and danish beer Carlsberg. And yeah they have a lot more alcohol in them than you americans are used too ;)

    And ps. Fireworks are only permitted in the month of december here in Denmark. So it’s a lot like Norway.
