Sun, oh.. lots of sun! This year has been the best summer I’ve ever had in Norway! The weather made a huge impact this time. In the few years I’ve visited Stavanger, I could still remember the number of times I had to wear layers of clothing because of the wind and rain NOT THIS TIME! I’ve finally experienced the typical Norwegian summer.
Going to the summer hytte (cabin) almost every weekend (or every other) is the most normal thing to do for Norwegians and this has been our normal case since my husband took me to Norway for the first time.
This year despite the very busy time we had with moving houses, settling, new work for Einar and taking care of the little one, we still managed to escape a couple of weekends in the cabin.
We were spoiled by my parents-in-law this summer – they have prepared amazing food for us, drinks and super “hygge” days and nights in the cabin.
There were fresh seafood – fish and crabs for one day, delicious BBQ dinner the next day, some pasta salad and left overs on a beach day and lots and lots of wine and champagne!
It was a very memorable, relaxing and a much needed holiday for all of us! I couldn’t wait for more summer and hopefully Julian and Sebastian could join us next time!
