  1. Hi i am from pakistan and i want to live lofoten forever with my son and wife is it possible to get house and permission to live my life there easily?

  2. My Great grand father Alfred Sterup Johnson , and his brother left the Loften
    islands in ca 1886 . And moved to Minn
    then Portland. He and his wife are buried
    in the rose City Park cemetery , less than
    a mile from where I now live. Think he died
    in the 1930’s They were swedish Lutherian’s , He was a very happy chap loved his family. was a miner in Minnesota
    Wish I had known him, He and his brother
    came to the US to improve their lives. His brother became a rabbit farmer. So they were both successful….
