Life in Britain today is nothing if not exhausting. If you live in the countryside there’s nothing to do but stare up at the stars and drink beer. Alternatively, if you live in the city, there’s nothing to do but work and then… drink beer. If you’re fed-up with the daily grind of the British way, then maybe it’s time that you take a look at some other countries that are garnering excellent reputations throughout Europe. One of those countries in particular is Norway.
Norway is a Scandinavian country which shares its eastern border with Sweden and has the second-lowest population density in Europe; its total population is about 5 million.
Norway is Beautiful
Northern Europe is generally regarded as a beautiful place, and Norway is no exception. If you go to Norway, visit at least one fjord. Fjords such as Geirangerfjord are regularly photographed and are extremely popular tourist attractions, but they are also exceptionally beautiful. They are serene, peaceful places that make the British Lake District pale by comparison. Fjord fishing is also an exhilarating way to experience what the Fjords of Norway have to offer. Whilst you’re there, fishing is extremely cheap because you don’t need to buy a fishing licence, but you may want to buy some gear before you go from an online retailer such as Whitby Angling Supplies.
Norway is Wealthy
If you visit Norway you’ll experience the Norwegian way of life, which is pretty affluent. Minimum wage is the equivalent of £13 per hour, and living costs are relatively cheap. The country is also quite socialist, too, and despite high wages, everything works. Trains run on time and products are as advertised.
Norway is Sunny
If you’re seeking sunlight round the clock then Norway is for you. Well, at least during the summer. The northern part of Norway falls in the Arctic Circle and is therefore subjected to 24 hour sun. Alternatively, if you visit during the months of November to February, you will bear witness to the incredible spectacle that is the Northern Lights, which are a real sight to see.
So the question you should ask yourself is this: does the view that you’re seeing outside your office window in Britain compare to what you could potentially be seeing out of your aeroplane window as you touch down into Norway? If you think that you might prefer the second view, you should seriously consider taking a look at Norway.
