In Norway, there is no such thing as bad weather!

While many around the world enjoy warmth and Sun

Norwegian kids grow up with a unique relationship to nature

Norwegians have a saying for this

It keeps them in a positive mood

Despite the horrible weather conditions

"Det finnes ikke dårlig vær, bare dårlige klær" 

"There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing."


The challenging weather in Norway 

May help us to understand the Norwegian culture

Climate shapes cultures

It influences behaviours

How people relate to others

How people relate to strangers

How people make friends

How they eat

How they meet

How they interact

How they party

TIP: Weather, like most things in life, is as bad as you make it to be. Change your mind-set, buy a proper jacket and do not let the weather stop you. You will feel as happy as a Norwegian.
