E’Louise Ondash, a travel writer from southern California, recently joined our Norwegian Splendor small group tour with her husband (and photographer!), Jerry, and wrote a wonderful series of informative articles about their trip that was published online for The Coast News Group and is linked below. From the cosmopolitan capitals of Copenhagen and Oslo to Norway’s magnificent fjord country, her pieces bring Norway and Denmark to life both on and off the beaten path.

Did you know 62% of Copenhagen's 805,000-plus residents commute to work and school via bicycle? In this week's article E'Louise enlightens us regarding the city's all-encompassing bike culture.
E'Louise concludes her series with a piece on Copenhagen's Rosenborg Castle, plus short descriptions of some of Denmark's other must-see sights.
