I'm pretty sure Norway doesn't have states. But we have.. counties, is that close enough?
Then again, you probably have no idea where Rogaland is, so why do I even bother replying to this thread. Go look it up on google or something.
Where I live it's basically like, the land of straits and old houses or something. A few hours of driving brings me to fjords..
God, I feel out of place.
