“Go back. Baaaaaaaaaaaack! Over the falls!”
My first brief introduction to Norway was on the Maelstrom ride in the Norway pavilion in Disney’s Epcot theme park. The animatronic troll bellowed his warning to unsuspecting trespassers whose Viking boat was about to “plunge” backwards over the simulated waterfall, launching into a presentation of Norway’s mythology and culture.
The romantic notion of Vikings and fjords stayed with me over the years, so when the opportunity to visit Oslo, the capital of Norway presented itself, I jumped at the chance.
