OMG. Waterfalls. Go to Norway and then never again understand why people travel to upstate New York to visit Niagara Falls.
For the Fourth of July holiday weekend, we shipped off (literally, we're on a ship) to Norway, another country boasting a flag of red, white and blue. Onboard Cunard's ship the MS Queen Victoria, we're playing dot-to-dot from Norwegian fjord to Norwegian fjord for a 7-day cruise featuring so many magnificent cliffs and fantasy waterfalls that the lyrics to "America The Beautiful" seem overly boastful.
It's like, "oh beautiful, for spacious skies" my bum! Norway's for spacious skies can run laps around the USA's, and this is a fact you don't fully realize until you're on a ship towering over an entire town one day (Stavanger, for instance) and then the next day, being ridiculously dwarfed by spiking precipices and ridiculous vistas (in the Sognefjord near the town of Flåm).
