I am from Norway.

I know; it seems like a weird title, but bear with me. Its been seven and a half year since I moved to Iceland to teach karate and to be honest I have no regrets at all. I love my new place of residence and the only things I miss from back "home" is the people, the nature, the silly language, good tv, brown cheese, Freia chocolates, real summers, cheap vacations and the atmosphere of Stavanger, Frøyja, Oslo, Odda, Gossen, Kjerag + barbeques on the beach in the warm summer nights. :)

With all that in mind, the casual observer might think I plan to move back home, but that is not the case. The only thing is that I just feel the need to ramble a bit since i am so wildly impressed with how the people of Norway came together after the terrorist-attacks of 22/7. Makes me very proud to proclaim: I am a norwegian. Wish I was there now, though, to give whatever little push I could away from hate and towards love.
