Norwegian culture

May and 17th of May.

Hi there!

Yes, I am still alive – I’ve just been busy being Norwegian, which in this case means spending time outside for all intents and purposes. You see, when the nights get lighter and longer and the sun is shining we all move outside for the season. After what feels like a 100 year long winter, it’s a blessing to the soul to feel summer upon our see-through, D-vitamin hungry skin. Even if I have to restrain myself from complaining about the heat at the moment. It’s been a month since my last post and I know I promised you a peak into my 17th of May celebration, so I will start of by doing so. The normal family person would, as I mentioned in my last post, be up at the crack of dawn getting ready for the school parade, eating ice cream, playing games and wave their flags. I on the other hand choose to go with option number 2: sleep in for a bit (which was lovely this year since it was raining in the morning) and then have to kick myself into getting dressed and be off to bubble lunch. Yes, champagne for lunch (my case: breakfast). With friends. That is what I do. It usually last for 4 hours before we move to a bar to drink some more. I took some pics to show you:

 

I captured some Russ for you too, even if they are half dead after a three week binge.

The thing about our Independence Day is that it’s pure joy. It’s the one day of year everyone just enjoy themselves. Not only was the 17th a great day, but summer came early this year. Since that day we’ve had up to 30 degrees Celsius almost every day! Can you believe? So I’ve pretty much been outside in the sun with friends, enjoying myself. I also took a very spontaneous trip to Israel, which I will post by it’s own. So you see, May has been busy. But I promise to update more often throughout the summer. Even while on holiday.

I hope your May has been as good as mine.

På gjensyn! .
