The weather is terrible, everyone shops at IKEA, and Norway is expensive? Not really. Living in Norway, is not that different from living in any other country. In this post I want to clarify a few things about Norway.
#1 – The weather is awful.
When I ask people from the other side of the globe about what they think the weather in Norway is like, the answer is always “Well, I`ve heard that it`s raining all the time”. I have to tell them that it`s not like that. Although the weather is bad, it`s not raining all the time.
#2 – Everyone shops at IKEA.
IKEA is not even from Norway! IKEA is originally from Sweden, it was founded in Älmhult, Sweden in 1943. IKEA`s headquarters is now located in Delft, Netherlands.
I`m not going to learn you everything about IKEA, but you can check out the Wikipedia page.
#3 – Norway is really expensive.
Norway is not really that expensive, in fact, the only reason that people find it really expensive here is because the 25% sales tax. All price tags already include that tax, which means that the prices is only slightly higher in Norway than for example the US.
