    "Hello" and "WELCOME" to the really great Spark Expat's team.

    I have seen some truly beautiful photo's of Norway on the internet, you have been there a long time!!

    I love the colour you choose for your Sparkpage, so cheerful and bright.
    This is a really nice group of people Debby. I'm sure you will agree with me when you get to meet all the team.
