Bucket List Trip to Norway Featured at Library

Posted: 11/27/2017 2:54:19 PM
Visiting Norway was on the bucket list for Howard Funke, an attorney who has represented the Coeur d’Alene Tribe for more than 20 years.

He will be joined by Susan Coby, AKA the “Soup Goddess,” a chef at Soul Café for a Novel Destinations presentation at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library, Friday, Dec. 8, at 7 p.m.

Funke and Coby will share stories and images from the trip as part of the occasional series sponsored by the Coeur d’Alene Public Library Foundation presented in the Community Room at 702 E. Front Ave.

Coby said that Funke has always wanted to visit Norway – he is half Norwegian and still has relatives who live above the Arctic Circle.

“I just love to travel,” she said, adding, “We were blown away with Norway's deep culture, the breathtaking diverse beauty and the warmth of everyone they encountered. Oh, yeah, and about half way into the trip we got married!”

The program is free, but donations are welcome.
