Great Norway pictures. Just happened upon your site, in search of the Chris Christensen who long ago wrote a Cribbage Freeware game.

I am in fact the same person who wrote Cribbage for the Mac so many years ago.

Chis, just getting caught up on some backlog of podcats and listened to your episoe on Norway. It brought back lot of good memories of my wife and I visiting there for a few days after we both graduated from college back in 1992. You are right, Norway is very expensivev. I remeber seeing an ad for an alcoholic drink that costs more than we were paying for our room each night!!
One thing that wasn’t mentioned was the Munch museum in Oslo. I had to drag my wife there to see all his works. Most people know “The Scream” but not much else of his works. I really enjoyed that.
We also did the Norway in a Nutshell tour and enjoyed it except it was Novemeber and very foggy so we skipped the fjord tour. We really couldn’t have seen anything. I hope to go back during hte summer sometime in hte future and be able to take a fjord tour.
I agree with the Norway Resistacne museum being very worthwhile. I’m a big WWII buff and really enjoyed that. I vted it as one of the four best museum in Eurpoe (behind the Checkpoint Charlie museum and the Pergamon Museum in Berlin, and the Ann Frank House in Amsterdam.
And I didn’t realize you were the same Chris Christianson that worte that Mac Cribbage game!? Amazing what you learn reading all the comments.
Keep up the great work!

Interesting podcast. I’m about to embark on a similar journey to meet some cousins and visit the town where my great-grandmother is from in Norway!
