I thought it would be a bit bigger. Of course I had seen an aeroplane before,
and yes of course I knew the aeroplane we were taking would be different as it
would be landing on the slippery sly ice. However to say this was small for an planner would be the understatement of the century. Though, I supposed I
would have to get used it. It was “home” for the next 2 hours. Quite
unhelpfully, I don’t remember much of what happened next. Probably because it
only really involved sleeping!!! Calmly
the trees waved at me. All around glistening white, soft as a cushion snow fell
slowly to the ground. Soaring above me, the daunting yet shy mountains stood; such
a warm welcome to such a freezing desolate place.“It’s
beautiful” I whispered to my dad, not wanting to break the fragile but powerful
cheek was pressed up against the aeroplane window. We were so close. Suddenly
the innocent snowflakes where whizzing around in all directions. The once calm
trees were blowing ferociously, nearly being ripped out the ground. Me, being
dopey me, it took a moment to realize the plane was landing! Finally we had
arrived in Norway!!! Quickly, we collected bags -which were so full they were
bursting open- and rushed to the aeroplane door.WOW!
I had never seen anything like it. Slowly I walked down the steps taking in the
overwhelming beauty of what lay before me. Sheets of untouched snow spread as
far as the eye could see. In my amazement I nearly fell down the last few
steps. Cautiously, I stretched out my leg and placed it on the ground (which I couldn't actually find due to the knee high snow). My first step in Norway! Adrenaline
rushed round my little delicate body in every direction. Even through my
leather boots, I felt the cold. Strangely comforting. Then we began!!!!!
