This is my own country, and there are naturally a number of travel articles from Norway on Sandalsand.
Norway may not be the most important country in the world, nor the biggest, or most powerful. Indeed, a Norwegian prime minister even uttered from the rostrum of the national assembly that “Norway is a country in the world”, meaning “small country”. Yet, Norway is probably one of the most important small countries of the world. This is, among us Norwegians, a well-established matter of fact.
On the other hand we see ourselves constantly amused, or disappointed, by the naivety and lack of knowledge shown abroad. The large number of articles from Norway on this website is a reflection of the fact that I actually live here, but also that I sincerely believe we have a lot to show visitors from other countries and cultures.
DERSOM DU LESER NORSK kan du lese de samme artiklene og enda mange til, på den norskspråklige delen av Sandalsand.
What to look for?
All entries from Norway are included in the illustrated list at the bottom of this page. Due to the large number I would suggest that you study them by clicking on the following categories instead, corresponding to the menu items in the Norway section.

Norwegians, even though we have always had a small population and a scarcely populated land, have had a continuous drive outwards. The 2013 and 2014 World champion of chess, Magnus Carlsen is one of them:
I got the travel bug when I was quite young. My parents took me and my sisters out of school and we travelled all over Europe. It was an eye-opening experience and, although I love Norway, I also enjoy visiting new countries. I don’t get homesick. (Magnus Carlsen)
