Folkevogn Tidende

A few weeks ago we received a nice email from a guy in Norway. He’d seen us in the African magazine article. Never in my life would I have imagined I would put those two sentences together.

Anyway, he wanted to use some of our photos for his club newsletter. We didn’t have to do anything but agree… easy enough.

Today, we received an electronic copy and were surprised to see just how thoroughly he had combed through our entire journey and pulled out some of the odd VW’s we’ve seen. My Norwegian is a bit rusty – okay, I actually don’t speak any language that involves umlauts or the letter “ø” – but the article looks great and we’re flattered to be included.

And, to Kjell and our new friends in Norway – Velkommen til vår reise – vi vil se deg når vi kommer til Norge!

    Wow, that is way cool. Does that mean your heading to Norway? Great you could even go the birthplace of Red Beard while you’re over in Europe.

    Love the site. You guys are an inspiration. Do you need a translation? I can put the wife on it…

    Leo – can’t predict how long we will actually be able to do this, but it sounds pretty good!

    Dave – no worries. We lived it.

    Yeah you guys are my inspiration too. I’ve got too much time invested in work to do the brave thing you did. But I finally got enough time in for an early retirement and will jump for it in a heartbeat! And when I do, I’ll hit the road in (ironically) my red ’71 Westy. So everyday at work I check Bodes Well and for a few minutes I escape to South America and wonder what will be the next amazing adventure.

    (I forgot)

    P.S. Here is a 100 Euro donation for your upcoming European trip, please take a lot of pictures of the VW factory for me and my Westy.
