It is surreal to live according to nature. In big cities and average climates humans make their own times and their own lives but in dynamic places of the world, like Northern Norway, nature makes all the rules.
Instead of living the same day-in and day-out, we live by the seasons and move with nature. Our family activities have become traditional to the seasons–we pick berries in autumn, Aurora chase in winter, ski in spring and hike in summer. With each new season we celebrate what nature provides.
I am finding that it is really fun to live this way and for the first time I think I have a glimpse into what it means to be Norwegian.
