Indeed a beautiful country, those fjords were formed when glaciers retreated to northern Europe. It is an expensive country because of the North Sea oil and gas, when they will be exhausted, Norwegians will start fishing and prices will become more accessible to tourists.

I think you will be disappointed if you expect us to go fishing when the oil dries out ...

Borgund stave church (Borgund stavkyrkje) is a stave church located in Borgund, Norway. It is classified as a triple nave stave church of the so-called Sogn-type. This is also the best preserved of Norway's 28 extant stave churches. It was probably built in the end of the 12th century, and has not changed structure or had a major reconstruction since that date.

The church site shows evidence of a previous building, which can point to an earlier church or perhaps an old pagan temple that had been taken into use as a church. The interior of the church, except for the pulpit and the altarpiece, is mainly free from the post-Reformation decorations seen in most other stave churches. An authentic medieval square-shaped baptismal font made of soapstone is still a part of the interior.

Several runic inscriptions are found on the walls of the church, one reads: Tor wrote these runes in the evening at the St. Olav’s Mass. And another one reads "Ave Maria" and you will find these at the west portal of the church.
