It's very late, so this will be my last post in Norway. I'm about to do that thing where I reflect on my vacation and think about how awesome it was. If that kind of thing bores you, then you may move on to partipating in non-blog reading activities.
This was the best vacation I've ever been on and I don't see how anything can top it soon. Food, friends, and new experiences all combined into a great big chunk of awesomeness. It was my first time traveling for a long period of time with a friend sans-adult supervision, whether in or out of the country. I'll admit that after a while I felt weird not being able to understand 99% of the conversations around me, but it was cool. Too bad I can't learn Norwegian through auditory osmosis.
Morten is by far the coolest host ever. Everrrr. There was no doubt in my mind that he wouldn't be as good of a friend in real life as he has been online for the past five of so years that I've known him. Hopefully it wasn't too much of a disappointment to meet me in bodily form. I'll acknowledge that I'm much more shy in real life than how I may appear in this blog; it's not really apparent if you only meet me one-on-one. I'll also acknowledge that I'm weird, loud, annoying, and not as helpful as I should be. Overall, I have a gajillion faults and I'm really lucky to know someone like Morten who doesn't have all those faults.
Giso is also an awesome host—Diana and I (semi-random people from the INTERNETS) did stay in her apartment after all! Although I didn't get to know her very well, I didn't need to be around her for long to know that she embodies all kinds of awesome. (You can feel the vibes!) Morten already knows this, but he's lucky to have her. ;)
K�re! What a wonderfully funny and friendly guy. I don't know if I've ever met anyone who looked and sounded so smiley-happy all the time. If you met him, you would <3 him too.
Diana...well, of course she's cool. Why else would I want her to come to Norway with me?!
Okay, I'm really tired. I wish I could write something better, but the old neurotransmitters are getting lethargic. Overall, Bergen is awesome, weegies are awesome, and despite that I don't deserve to, I know way too many off-the-chart awesome people. I miss this place already.
This is all I know how to say, so...to everything and everyone that made this trip possible, tusen takk.
