adidas boost 2 Living in Stavanger

Transportation, it depends where you can get a place to live. Norwegian cities are expensive for property, you can get a cheaper house in the country, but you will probably require a car, which will require an mot test every two years, and winter tyres are a legal necessity in winter.

Noorwegian buses are nice and clean, and normally punctual, if a litle expensive.

Not much experience with trains, but my Norwegian g/f says they’re hopeless.

Weather ? Summers are quite short, but beautiful.

Winters are long, and cold, but I guess you get used to it. Around her place, it’s been an average temperature of about 10c since December. Snow which fell in mid December is still lying.

However, a little snow doesn’t paralyse the country, like it does here.

Everyone puts their thermals on and gets on with it. It’s a different type of cold than the UK, it doesn’t feel quite as bad.

Stavanger IIRC is closer to the coast, so may be slightly different.

General cost of living is quite high as a tourist, but Norwegian wages are quite high, so it’s on a par with the UK. Fuel is slightly more expensive.

you’ll find some links on here which will explain lots of things.

Food is comparable in price, but of better quality. Healthy eating is normal over there, rather than fashionable.
