Anyone move to Norway from the United States?

Question by Wiss: Anyone move to Norway from the United States?
I recently moved to Bergen, Norway. I am having an awful time adjusting to not only the weather, but the horrific culture shock. I am finding myself very isolated and a bit stir crazy. Does anyone have any suggestions for what to do in the area? Specifically things to do with children? Thanks!

It does take a while to get used to Norway after living the US. I’m originally from Norway, but lived in the US for 6 1/2 years, and found things quite difficult on my return. I’m not that familiar with what there is to do in Bergen with kids, but I have been there a few times, both as an adult and as a kid. The funicular up to Fløyen is quite nice (Fløybanen) and so is the aquarium: http://www.akvariet.no/engelsk/index.html

You might want to try out this Yahoo group for expats in Bergen. I’m sure you’ll find others in the same situation as yourself, and loads of good ideas :-)


Best of luck!
