The wayfaring strangers. In terms of miles traveled and places seen you've now officially passed Marco Polo.

What a trip though! I would never have thought Flam was so far from the coast.

This map lets you zoom in and out so you can see where it is in Norway, and also at street level. Flam is so interesting. On the one hand I can't remember seeing a place so different. On the other hand there are similarities between the farmhouses there and in the northern Midwest where I grew up, which has many descendants of immigrants from Norway, Sweden, etc. Flam just seems so isolated in space and time, and yet people left there and took their ways with them across the ocean.



I was just thinking, you've gone a long time without playing golf. Were you able to talk the pilot into flying faster?
