My Travel Story

by: Katrina Haugsby Start Date: Feb 17, 2018 - End Date: Feb 16, 2019
Thank you for visiting my/Takk for besøket! Fund My Travel Page! My name is Katrina Haugsby and I am half-Norwegian. My grandma and grandpa Haugsbø came to America through Ellis Island. They were from Bygstad (picture included). 

I have included a link to my hopeful tour through Norway via train. Why train? I have never been on a train before - not even a subway! I know, I'm so cultured! However, I think traveling by train will provide a sense of comfort and relaxation. Being able to see the beautiful nature that will surround me will be unforgettable. 

(Fun Fact) When my grandparents moved from Norway to America they had to change their last name to Haugsby because the ø is not part of the American alphabet. 

I will keep everyone updated if anything changes. I have this date set a year from now because it is a lot of money but also I would like the extra time to brush up on my Norwegian :) And I want to take the time to thank anyone who has visited this site and if you're unable to donate please consider sharing through social media! And if you have questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to me or check out my profile  :)  Thank you so much/Tusen takk
