    Looking for the Norway report. found this gem in the American Way inflight magazine. American Way Inflight Magazine (No I dont read it, it was on the last page)

    Something Fishy in Norway

    I am a foodie and will try anything once. I had a friend from Norway who would always joke about a fish called lutefisk. It’s a white fish that they air-dry for three or four days, then bathe in lye and cold water. Then they rinse it, cook it and serve it with bacon and potatoes. It sounded so ridiculous that I had to try it when I was in Hamar. Norwegian skaters were like, “How did you just eat that?!” It was weird, but I didn’t mind it

    I don't get it, either count all of them as one trip, or you need to write one for each flight you took on this trip :P

    The idea is to organize them by destination, not by trip.

    Not a new TR, but I suppose this is the best place to put this.

    I've uploaded a ton of new images to my public Flickr page, many of which have not been shared here before. Check it out at https://www.flickr.com/photos/morrishersko/albums, if you're so inclined.

    I've created a new thread for random small TRs or pictures:
    https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=95240.0

    I've linked to existing threads, and added one new one (more to come):

    I've also updated the wiki on this page, see the top of the list where I will drop in those new mini TRs.
