Sixteen Jewels met at Tarpinian’s in October. Tarpinian shared her stories of two trips she took to Norway in 1992 and 1993. For one trip, about 10 family members traveled to look up the locations where ancestors lived. The second was a 12-day cruise with clients of Globe Travel on a cargo ship along the coast of Norway to the Russian border and back to Bergen, stopping at more than 30 Norwegian villages.
Mirt Brown treated the Jewels to homemade sandbakkles (a special Norwegian cookie) which were enjoyed by all. The remainder of the afternoon was spent visiting and sharing memories.
