However, Norway is living up to its reputation of the land of the “tall, blond haired, blue eyed beautiful people”, as my neighbour Mirjam (over there) proves. Sadly, only kidding again!
I have never felt so short in my life! 6′ 4″ is not uncommon and that is today. Imagine going back a thousand years when these guys were raised on Moose meat, playing rough and tumble with Troll’s and hunting the Kraken, before growing up into strapping sailors and going on their “grand tours” to Europe!
As for us, everything is slowly settling into place as we tackle yet another countries version of bureaucracy. And guess what…….it snowed yesterday. The 21st of April and it snowed!
Having said that, the weather here has been refreshing, I never knew that being cold could be so comfortable! It must be all the blue skies and sunshine that comes with it.
