An introduction to Norway! Want to get to know Oslo & Norway from a local Norwegian girl, who will tell you all about the land of northern lights and the midnight sun? Are you a little tired of visiting endless Oslo sights that don't feed your appetite for real Norwegian history? A conversation at a lovely café with me will suit you well then. You will meet me at a charming café the locals love, different from the usual tourist spots, and here you will acquire deeper impressions of your visit to the capital of Norway from your chat with me. What is Norway famous for other than the Viking spirit and heritage? So much more. How do we differ from Denmark and Sweden? You will learn the light background of Norway, how we once lost our country (about the occupations of Norway). I'll tell you about misleading stereotypes and the real achievements of Norway or Norwegians, about the people we're proud - and ashamed of. I will go into the specifics of the Norwegian mentality, distinguishing features of our national character and the Norwegian identity. We'll meet in a lovely historic café with a pleasant atmosphere, you can buy tasty coffee, sodas, yummy baked goods, salads and sandwiches, as we immerse ourselves in Norwegian culture and history. I'll even teach you some cool Norwegian phrases and expressions:)After this talk you may look at Norwegians or Norway in a new way ☆ :)
I'm a local expert with a background as a lecturer. And because of that, talking to a group of people like this is something I am passionate about. I have lots of experience with sharing travel help and tips to people who are visiting Norway. I offer a friendly conversation over a cup of coffee with you, and I will help you take a break from your busy schedule to learn some cultural secrets. During this meeting I will tell you things about Norway that won't be in the tourist guide book. This will be the real way to learn about Norway! You will immerse yourself in Norwegian history, culture and the authentic life of Norwegian people. Live conversation and real stories that you’ll never forget. You can also ask me anything that you are usually afraid of asking Norwegians fearing it will be rude to ask. I will love all 'silly' questions:)
There will be food and drinks available from coffee to cakes and diner food and drink depending on time of day. At a minimum…
The café where we will have the conversation at is off the beaten path away from the typical tourist area, but still very easy to get to with only a few stops with the bus from the city central. The baked good they have at this café are delicious, and you can even get some traditional Norwegian sourdough bread and freshly stirred strawberry spread like Norwegians eat it, here. A perfect place to lean back and chat.
