My husband and I were visiting some of his extended family near Oslo. Our host, Tor, took us to his friend's farm to pick plums and to swim in the fjord. Not knowing what a fjord was, I brought my suit and went along. The water was deep and the "diving board" was nothing more than a steel beam that wiggled with every step.
It was scary but I knew that if I didn't jump in I'd regret it.
