The Norwegian Bus

Source: "The Social Guidebook to Norway

This is when you know that a Norwegian bus is full

and that you need to stand

Norwegians value their personal space

as much as their opportunities to be alone

They will travel alone to work

Rather than organising to commute with colleagues

It is much more efficient and practical

And you do not need to talk to anyone

Norwegians will stand rather than sit next to a stranger in a bus

Confined places and physical proximity quickly become uncomfortable in Norway

Norwegians need a lot of space to feel comfortable
