What’s an ø?   7 comments

Florø is Norway’s most westernmost town, It was built on the site of a farm ‘Flora’ in 1860, but they drop the “a” and replace it with a “ø”. The “ø” is the Danish word meaning “island” added to the end since the town is located on an island. I bet you didn’t know that, ok maybe you did. I had one of the nicest pizza’s in my life here, who would have thought that?

Very picturesque, but like most town’s in Norway the industrial side of life always finds it’s way to the waters edge.
