So little time time but already a lot!

From on-arrival seminar in Balestrand Hi! We haven`t been here for more then a couple of months, but so much has already happened! First we went to do an on-arrival-seminar in Balestrand!

On-arrival seminar and everyday life

Hei, Now are already the first 1, 5 months in Norway over! Maybe it`s because of the many kind people and the wonderful place it seems like the time just flies away?! After 2 weeks in Norway we had a really amazing On-Arrival Seminar for one week in Balestrand. We, 28 volunteers from countries all […]

Ny volontør i Midtdalen

Hei! Jeg heter Manuel og kommer fra Tyksland (My Norwegian is limited to this few words yet, so I will continue in English). I come from a small town just 15 km away from Frankfurt and I am the new volunteer for Ung i Midtdalen in Vinstra. After my hiking summer holidays in Rondane National […]

Funny facts about Norway by a French girl

After living 8 months in Vinstra, here are some funny facts about Norway according to me:   Norwegian can have really strange habits for a French person. To start: the fact of consuming snuss (tobacco in small bags). As it is unknown and illegal in France, it is really surprising at first when you meet people with it. […]

Thoughts after almost seven months in Norway

With only little more than two months left to live in this Country, and with long days and warmer temperatures, I can start to make a sum of this wonderful opportunity I had. Last weekend I was reading again a book I`ve finished before leaving for Norway back in last summer. It’s about the impressions […]

The learning process of being a «role model»

I have three months left to live in Norway and I can already feel the end of this adventure approaching. I came here 6 months ago to work as a “role model” in youth houses which technically means to be an example for the youths and have a positive influence. To be honest, the first […]
