Det kirken ligger på familien min bondegården.
(I'm pretty sure that I said that wrong)
The Borgund Stavkirken, just up the road from Lærdal, Søgne of Fjordane, has been my family's church for generations, and many of my Norwegian relatives (that I can trace) are buried there.
I hope to go back there, someday.
And yeah, it's really cool. You can still see where people from the viking era left their weapons before entering, the bit of graffiti that some kid (probably several layers of great-grandparent to me) did back whenever, and everything. It's also how that particular branch of the family makes a living anymore.
But it's also a community pride thing. Everybody in the village of Borgund takes a hand in church upkeep.
