For New Years, I set off to Bergen, Norway to spend it with my boyfriend. While I wasn’t in the tropics, it was still a nice change of pace from the hustle and bustle of my typical week. I had the amazing opportunity to spend New Years Eve with this family and eat some typical Norwegian food, which was actually quite delightful. I had my first experience with Aquavit, Sheepribs, mashed Kålrabi (I think it might be called kålrabistappe or something??), Julebrus, Red cabbage, all on New Years Eve. I learned that New Years is the only time in Norway when fireworks are permitted (can you imagine how a law like that would go over in the fireworks capital of the world, the USA???) And I also learned that Norwegian beer is much heavier and potent than American beer LOL.
Godt nytt år fra Bergen, Norge!
