Velkommen til Sørlandet!

When I hold my lectures about the Norwegian culture

I am often told that Norwegians are not all the same

That differences exist from East to West

And from North to South

I agree

While for a foreigner like me

Norwegians looked pretty much all the same during my first years in Norway


For Norwegians themselves it is a whole different story

A Nordnorsk (Northern Norwegian) look a little more like this

While those Norwegians from "Sørlandet" look a little more like this


Some say it is the influence of God

It all depends on your own perception
