My Norwegian Fall Break

Oh, Wisconsin. What a beautiful fall break we spent together! I fall more in love with you every time I’m there.

This trip was heritage-themed, organized by some of Daniel’s family members with the intention of exploring the Norwegian background of and stories surrounding his mom’s side of the family. We stayed in a charming B&B lodge on Lake Ripley, and I wish we had gotten more time to enjoy the view! Our days were full to the brim with dozens of activities, including:

  • the dairy farm on campus at the University of Wisconsin (including ice cream from their creamery!)
  • a fancy-pants evening at a dinner theatre with incredible food and West Side Story
  • Norskedalen, a Norwegian heritage center in the mountains
  • a traditional lutefisk dinner at Daniel’s great-grandma’s old church
  • a trip to Ridgehurst, the Ross family farm
  • tons of delicious meals involving more cheese and ice cream than any normal human should consume
