To all our loyal subscribers, followers and readers!

For Norwegians, summer is an important time for relaxation. This year, nearly one million Norwegians travel to southern Europe to embrace the sun, the beaches and the pleasant temperature. Many people visit their cabin – either by the sea or in the mountains.

Summer vacation is an important part of Norwegian culture, and Norwegian schoolchildren are pleased with whole two months. Ordinary workers have 4-5 weeks.
