Reine village norway

There’s one place in the world I want to travel more than anywhere else and its Norway. For years I have been drooling over photos of the dramatic fjords, charming fishing villages, Northern lights… you name it, I have most certainly pinned it. But as I’m sure many of you will already know, Norway is notoriously expensive and for an Australian, it is pretty much as far away as you can travel. However – finally my day has come! Next month I will be taking my mum to the other side of he world to visit Norway and the two of us are (understandably) giddy with excitement.
