I am not sure when it happened, was it two years ago when we first met, or recently when we met after such a long time? I have to admit, I’m confused.
I remember when I arrived in Bergen in 2010 and you greeted me with a warm smile, you were so unexpectedly hot. I was so nervous meeting you. I mean, you always expect so much from everybody, the price you pay to meet you is relatively high and I was excited when I finally had the chance. All the things you offered me to do were incredible and I only had 10 days with you. You showed me your beautiful fjords and took me up on your glaciers. I wasn’t surprised that you can be cold as ice.
But you also were that hot that when you wanted you were able to melt this ice and transform it into a raging cold current. I needed a thick wetsuits while canyoning in Voss and I think that I fell in love with you right there for the first time. When I was camping on that deserted island with my friends in the middle of nowhere this love just got stronger.
But what happened in the mean time? This is now two years ago and I’ve seen so much in that time. I never forgot you but replaced you with others in the mean time. Thailand was high on the list but never touched me that much as you did. It was easy to turn my back to it and walk away. I sometimes think back of those relaxed times by the beach though.
However, now I’m back and you are cold. Ice cold. But I’m ready and it doesn’t bother me at all. The contrary, your beauty during winter is just as incredible as in summer. When I look up into the sky I see all those beautiful stars. The last time I’ve seen something like this was 5 years ago in the middle of nowhere in Australia. But before you get jealous, Australia doesn’t have the Aurora Borealis. You are special Norway. Seriously! Those colors. Oh. My. God. I have no words!
And all those lovely animals you have, the dog sledding with the cute huskies in Alta and the reindeer sledding in Tromsø. Oh boy, this was incredible. After all those years that we know each other you still are able to leave me speechless and I’m sure that you have so much more to offer that you are still hiding from me. I can’t wait to visit you a third and a forth time.
I hope we can stay in touch more often now. I’d like to visit you regularly and get to know you a bit better.
I’d like to thank you Norway. You are special. You are unique. You make me feel alive!
