Norwegians and Physical Contact


When you meet a Norwegian

Be subtle in your physical contact

Kissing is a no-go

Touching and hugging can happen

But it is most common outside work

And women tend to do it more than men

Norwegians can be easily scared

They need their personal space in most situations
