Maybe it’s not having a clue what someone is on about when they tell you they have plans in 'week 13'? Or the lamentable lack of variety in supermarkets? Tell us about the small things in Norway that can get on your nerves.


No country is perfect, Norway included, even though overall it’s a great country to call home.

Every nation and culture has its quirks and peculiarities that can get on your nerves from time to time.


For some, it may be the lack of variety in supermarkets, the infuriatingly counterintuitive numbered week system, or the country’s restrictive alcohol laws.

We’d love to hear your lighthearted takes on some of the small things that can irritate you about life in Norway below. We’ll aim to include your answers in a future article.
