Travel Tuesday: Mom's 1953 Europe Road Trip: Passport Stamps

From Mom's Europe trip diary, in the "PLACES VISITED" section:
September 9, Wednesday – Road between Lillehammer and Sarpsborg, Norway

Rained all day so didn't get to see countryside at its best.  Drove to Oslo, but no hotel rooms available.  Went by American Express for Joye's mail and decided to drive on.  Drove to Sarpsborg where all hotel rooms were filled, but we managed to get three beds at the home of a Norwegian family.  Place was very clean, but people could speak no English.  Went out to eat and afterwards went to bed.

At left is a page from Mom's passport, showing the stamps for September 5 through 18.

This is the 33rd in a series of posts transcribing entries in my mother's 1953 Europe Trip journal.
