Chameleon I may be, but foreigner I will remain. Mostly out of conscious choice. I like being different. Also I like noticing the quirks. Things that I observe with my foreign eyes.
There is nothing like having kids to make you regret ever using the word never at all.
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.
Norwegians were recently named the happiest people on the planet and to truly understand why this is you need to go beyond the statistics and look at the underlying cultural factors. Like, the hytte.
"I am a broken woman! Norway, you have finally done it!" There is video evidence of me saying these words.
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.
I have been testing the blogging waters for some time now
