This time a photo session. Catching a really good sunset in Norway is sometimes tricky, due to the early hours of sunset (around 4pm). It happened that yesterday not only was I on time by the Mjøsa but I also got the cloudless, beautiful sky.
It’s Wednesday, middle of the week, middle of November. Oslo is already dressed up for Christmas. The bells are hanging up through the main part of Karl Johans gate, which is the most famous street in the capital of Norway. And this is where I spend those few hours with my friends.
Janteloven, Jantelögin, Jantelagen, Janten laki… all those names sum up to Law of Jante. It’s not accidental that all those synonyms are Scandinavian or Nordic. It’s all began there. In the simplest words, it’s all about being ordinary, negative look on individual success and generally speaking, equality of everyone i every life aspect.
Darkness. Around 4 pm the Sun goes down, and after 16 hours it’s a full, shiny day again. It’s only November here, but for someone who doesn’t know this climate, it’s strange. Sometimes really depressing. Isn’t it odd, that darkness has so much to do with the darkness of the soul?
It’s really important these days to unplug yourself. This post is not connected (see what I did there) to Norway, however, you can say it follow their good mindset. It’s rather hard to actually put our phones and laptops away, and just sit with a book and good music, or just doing house chores. Some people have no idea, how relaxing is cleaning your house. Also it’s a good exercise. Two birds, one stone.
The best way to learn yourself language is to hear it. That means: movies, series, YouTube videos, music etc. Today I want to stick with series.
According to independent.co.uk, Norway is on the 6th place of 21 most expensive countries to live in, with around 925£ per month to rent an 1 bedroom apartment. Bearing this in mind, is there any chance of possibility to live cheap there?
