After reading this morning's New York Times Travel piece 36 Hours - Bergen, Norway
I cannot be silent any longer about the connection I have experienced between Beacon NY and Bergen, Norway especially after recent trips to the gateway city to the fjords. When you read the Times article and learn about the nature scene for hikers, the foodie scene, the music scene and the hang-out scene for drinking beer, you will know what I know about the connection. And now that Norwegian Air will be flying direct to Bergen from Stewart International Airport, it is a no brainer to predict that travelers from Norway and vice versa will understand that there is a link between the fjords of Norway and the fjord on the Hudson.

Food for Thought: I think it is time for Beacon to go international. Maybe this article is serendipitous. Join me in envisioning an international connection for Beacon and Bergen. Sister cities, anyone?
