Way to Sansva, er  (2 Answers)

My father was born in Sandsvaer (I should have looked up the spelling, but I hope I got it close enough for people familar with the fylke to recognize what I meant). His father had a farm there, and there's some confusion about what the farm was called. I thought since his name was Mork, the farm was too. Anyway, on my bucket list is to stand on the farm where my father lived as an infant. Maybe even get a picture of me with the current owners. I figure the way to go is fly to Oslo and then get whatever transportation goes from there to Buskerud. Perhaps get a reservation to stay a day or two. I guess my question is how best to do all this. Love to take my wife along, but she is dead set against crossing the ocean for anything that is short. She just has too much arranging to do when she leaves home for anywhere, so I guess I'd be on my own. If I could book a tour that let me make a side trip, that's another option because I think riding a tour ship into a fjord would be awesome (yeh, I'm in my 60's, but I can still be awestruck). My mother said she had ancestors who migrated from Sognefjord to America in the 19th century, so I wouldn't mind at all visiting that one.

Car rental in Gol or Oslo?  (1 Answer)

I will be arriving in Oslo this summer and travelling to Sigdal and Toten. Someone suggested to me that I would be better off to take a train to Gol and then rent a car there, instead of renting a car in Oslo. Gol seems to be out of the way for going to Sigdal and Toten. Is this a good idea?
