How I learnt the upside of wild kids in the land of Northmen, the Fjords, and the largest sovereign fund in the world.
Enjoyed reading every bit of this! I have a curious 3 year old boy and a city dwelling 11 year old girl, and this inspired me to plan our next vacation off the grid!
"I found a “hygge” or “koselig” (loosely translated to feeling cozy and finding joy in the little things) " - interesting, and telling, that we don't have single words or these concepts for this in English! Sounds like we could all benefit from having more of these in our lives!
I love this. I wish i had this mindset and understanding when my three boys were young. I have half Norwegian blood but seem to only have embraced the koselig aspects of my heritage, not the Viking adventurer parts. Im enjoying hearing about your perpective on parenting in Scandinavia. I raised my sons in NYC and suburban Philadelphia.
