Ah, I remember you from the edubuntu gathering, and it would be nice
to have you participating.

This on the other hand make it harder.  It is enough to get at least
3-5 developers from Norway to the gathering, and way over the limit of
200 EURO where you need approval up-front to get the travel covered

With that prize-tag, I would personally recommend against paying your
trip.  Are you sure there are no cheeper alternatives?  I believe Joey
Hess was able to get from USA for 300-400 EURO.

Your experience sounds very relevant, and I would love to have you
working on thin client solutions or application selections for
debian-edu. :)
