Anna Markussen

Hi! I am Anna, and I am a Norwegian living in southern part of the country. Originally I come from Eastern Norway. I have been traveling to places all over our beautiful country - big and small - and I have many experiences I want to share with you!

How did you get involved in travel?

"I started working in a hotel in Southern Norway more than 3 years ago. During my work days I got to listen to so many fantastic stories from my guest's itineraries, and it made me realize how many travelers that enjoy exploring Norway. Their stories, and my own, I will always keep in mind when I plan your next trip!"
