OK so 3rdchakra pointed me to this website with lots of pictures from all over. I decided to post some of the oned from Norway since so many of my friends here are Americans. Showing off my country a little :) I should probably tell you something about Norwegians. Most of us are very close to nature and going hiking with friends or family is very common. Most families have a cabin in the mountains or by the sea, and go out there whenever they can. Everyone learns how to crosscountry ski from a very early age (5?). It is a big country with very little people in it, so naturally a lot of it is still nature.
