 Zip Facts about Norway:
  • Norway is one of the wealthiest countries, was rated the most peaceful country, and the Norwegians are said to read more than any other population in the world. Sounds a bit like Utopia
  • On the other hand, food prices are among the highest in the world, so many Norwegians cross the border into Sweden to buy groceries
  • The unofficial national dish of Norway is frozen pizza and Grandiosa is their favorite brand. Officially, Norwegians love lutefisk, a fish immersed in lye and rinsed in water
  • The Swedes and Norwegian people consider each other siblings, celebrating and jeering accordingly
  • Norwegians can give the New Yorkers’ reputation a run for their money.  In Norway, it is not considered rude to not say excuse me when you bump into someone, to not smile back, to not say thank you
