(Meaning Goodbye in Norwegian.) Next week, E and I are headed to Norway for three weeks with my Dad, stepmother, sister and neice. We will be traveling through the Fjords for two and a half weeks and ending our trip visiting our cousins at their lake house on the island of Hvasser. While I am wildly excited to have this amazing opportunity and special family time my heart is breaking at the thought of leaving my little Louie Taco behind. Three weeks is a looong time for a seven year old to be away from their mommy— and it might be even longer for her mommy to be away from her. But I know that she is in good hands with Daddy- he’s got quite the agenda planned!
The other stress factor for me was what to pack?!? We will be on a ship for two and a half weeks so we will need to pack lightly. The average temperatures can be anywhere from 20 degrees to 80 degrees. Packing for this trip requires a serious strategy! I think I’ve finally got it all figured out.
