Today I have been in Norway for four years. What have I learnt in four years? Lots about Norway and Norwegians but more about myself and what I am capable of.
A couple of times a year I leave home to visit home...This, I know sounds suspiciously like I am talking about going on holiday, but a holiday it is not.
Norwegians seem perfectly at ease when the conversation comes to a standstill. Not me. I am all about the chat. As an experienced chatter I have some go to topics that always work. Here are my top 3:
So, basically, I spent my teens wanting to be someone I wasn't, my twenties trying to explain who I was and now finally, in my thirties, I am at the point where I am using my multi-cultural-ness to my advantage.
Of all my language discovery moments, the best are when English words are integrated into the Norwegian language, as is.
