Norwegians have the best records for Skiing in the world. Thats what I've heard at least. My great grandparents are from Norway. My grandparents are full Norwegian born in America. I'm glad to know that my Country is the best at a Sport. It seems nice you know.

Living in Norway, they feed us this sport on the tv fairly regularly. I can safely say it's as boring as watching pint dry.

However, as far as exercise goes, it is one of the best. You get a great workout in both your upper and lower body. Plus, the scenery here is magnificent. :wink:

After a while, people get confused, they don't know who they really are and they even don't know where they live...

How old are you? You know there are foreign exchange programs you can attend if you want to live in Norway for a year.

Edit: Given that you aren't too old or too young.

What do you mean by the phrase "My country"?

My country is the United States of America and I'm an American, as a matter of fact a 5th generation American. I love to ski, but it isn't the end all to life. I've been to Sweden, lived there 6 months and would never, ever return.

Just goes to show....

My daughter spent 12 months in Karlstad and loved it! Couldn't wait to go back.

Shes currently on her way to Hvisten in Norway with friends.

If living in Norway is really something you want, you can go talk to your school counsellor and discuss what options you have. My school had an american exchange student last year, but I don't know how he ended up here.

The climate is not nearly as cold as what I've experienced in the past in Chicago.

So do you live in Norway, or are you an American telling us, that Norway is your Country? If Norway is "your country" than the United States of America is not your country.

So, which one is your country?

I think he means that he loves whatever country his Parent (Mum/Dad) came from. (Norway) He's just an American citizen wanting to live in Norway.

Okay?

Take your time, but an answer would be nice.
