We are a married couple from Norway in our first 60-ties. Odd is a retired Police Chief and Bjorg (Bjørg) is a retired Doctors Nurse. We have been in Florida many times since 2011, and we fell both at once in love with US's Venice Fort Lauderdale and bought a condo here after only three days in the city.
