Hard question!, because I've never been to Norway. I only know  Norway from Telly. My father's been there and he loved it. He only complained about the cold, he said it was very cold.

But he spoke highly about  norwegians, so I have no reasons to complain about them.

Tall people, white skinned.  I believe they are really open minded and friendly, even when they are considered in some countries as emotionless.

Uh… it´s like the characters of the movie "Fritz Viltt" (without counting the killer of course Laughing). By the way, the origin of my name is supposed to be norwegian, hehehe!

I had a friend who is taking a PhD in Norway… and he says that Norwegian are liberated…

There's always a live show… hahahaha!

But they are good and friendly…  I'm planning to get there also and have my PhD too…

I'll give a short summary about norway.

We're considered rude because, we're not very formal in when we talk to strangers, (like the french). Also we don't say "please" all the time. 

We have one official language, but to written ones. (stupid if you ask me)

It is expensive to live here, yes, but a lot of things are free, like education and health care. Also there is great financial support from the state for those who need it. and it is one of the best countries to live in.

There is a LOT of beautiful nature here, and many enjoy it!

Also, we don't drive everywhere we need to go, like i think they do in the US. Usually kids walk to school and walking in the streets is not considered risky business.

Though many people are baptised, not a lot of people go to church and if someone said "I'll pray for you" norwegians will usually think you are VERY religious and probably al little wierd. 

Apart from that, I think norwegians are like most people.

(I have probably forgotten something, so please don't jump down my throat fellow norwgians)
