Norway’s dynamic beauty attracts travelers from around the world. The rugged mountain ranges dominate the land, cut deep by colossal fjords of turquoise and blue. Thousands of islands speckle the coastline, bordered by three seas. Spruce trees shoot high towards the heavens, displaying a forest green blanket between the earth and the sky.
Shops and restaurants are everywhere, but if all you want is something light and refreshing, there’s nothing better than shaved ice. Select a fruit-flavored syrup. Watch the street vendor fill a large cup past the rim with ice shaved from a giant block, and drizzle it with your flavor of choice and a thin stream of coconut milk. Grab a straw, a long plastic spoon, and some napkins, and find a shady spot to sit. For $2 you have a treat you can spoon, slurp, and once you get a little farther down, stir.
