Olga Svensen, Sven’s childhood sweetheart and life-time companion, stands in front of their newly acquired sod-roof cabin near Kløfta (right and below), a suburb to the northeast of Oslo. “

Sven and I yoost luf our noo cabin, it iss a tream coome troo. Gott iss gud too uss,” replied Olga when asked about the Svensens’ new abode.

Sven and Olga were lucky, their cabin has windows, some of their neighbors’ cabins don’t.

Sven and Olga will be departing soon on a goodwill tour of Norway sponsored by the King and Queen. Stay tuned to the Sven’s World web page as we follow their trek through the fjords and mountains of Norway.
