This past weekend, I met one of my blog readers who I have been talking to via email for a couple of months. She recently moved to a nearby city for a job and I was happy to reach out and meet her at a cafe for some conversation on adjusting to life in Norway and general expatriation. I've spoken to many people via email and recently I've been very busy and haven't had much time to get back to every comment on my blog or email, but I promise I will soon!
Anyways, regardless of the differences of our reason for coming to Norway, we of course had a relaxed, easy and comfortable time discussing what it's like to be a foreigner in Norway, the "weird" things about Norwegian culture, and bits and pieces of what our home country is like as well as some personal stories.
It was a kind of surreal experience to meet a reader. Just to go from one day last year deciding to start up a blog about my personal experience with moving to Norway and going from talking to other expatriates and now meeting one! She and I did decide we should meet up again sometime and still stay in touch via email.
