Since i am currently in Norway I thought my first post should have a Norwegian flavor! There's certainly lots to experience here from the immensity of the fjords to the weird caramel-flavored brown cheese (brunost - tip: the only way to eat it, is to forget it's actually cheese).
The classical Norwegian woolen sweaters stand out to me in particular. I found out recently the patterns and symbols on them are all taken from Norway's history and culture. Ha det! :
