Norwegians are like Coconuts

Source: "The Social Guidebook to Norway 2"

Think of a coconut

It is hard on the outside

And soft inside

Just like Norwegians

 Norwegians may feel hard from the outside

But they are very nice inside

Give it a little bit of time


Leave space

Be independent

Invest carefully

Control your emotions

Involve yourself


It takes great effort to crack the shells of Coconuts

You need special tools to reach their soft side

Just like Norwegians


I have been working hard to provide such tools

So that more appreciate the soft side of Norwegians

Here is my new book

The Social Guidebook to Norway 2
