Oh the joy! Spring is finally here after a long, dark, cold and snowy winter! I cannot describe the feeling it gives and unless you live in a raw seasonal place with hard winters and (sometimes) hot summers, it’s hard to comprehend the sensation.
We’ve got some signs of spring other than the temperature going up and the snow melting. I’m going to walk you through them.
- Hestehov/Coltsfoot: First spring sign – this flower sticks up through the snow.
- Cafes and restaurants set up their serving zones outside: Norwegians sit outside for the whole spring/summer – which is why we have both heaters and umbrellas – in case of rain or cold. Summer is summer and summer is spent outside! Even if it means wearing a scarf.
- Humans outside in the streets: People come out of their winter caves to enjoy themselves and each other.
- Sunshine: It speaks for itself. We are not spoiled…
If you ever want to experience Norwegians at their best, spring is the time to visit! Not only are we happy, we’re friendly too!
So this was a quicky – need to get back out and enjoy while I can. Have a lovely day, reader ❤
