Normally before a trip abroad, I spend some time learning the basics of the language. Hello, thank you, check please, etc. French, Spanish, Italian...they're similar in so many ways, but Norwegian is next to impossible. Not only do the words not have any Latin roots that make them easily identifiable, in many cases two, three, even four words are strung together into one! As you can imagine from the pictures above, we're having a ton of fun trying to pronounce them.
