Norway’s Birthday

Reflections Coincidence 4: As well as this weekend being the first anniversary of my ambition ending, next month is the tenth anniversary of my first international one, the Midnight Sun Marathon in Tromso. While all my marathons have had nice nature, running alongside Arctic fjords was sensationally surreal, and this morning I saw this blog post celebrating Norway’s birthday this week. Moreover, last night I watched Dead Snow 2, with some great Norwegian/Scandinavian dark humour!

The World according to Dina

17. Mai – Norwegischer Nationalfeiertag

On May 17th 1814 the first Norwegian constitution was passed.
Am 17. Mai 1814 wurde die erste Verfassung Norwegens verabschiedet.


Norway is no country of military parades – Great, isn’t it?! The National Holiday is coined by childlike fun, games, and a feeling of togetherness.

Norwegen ist kein Land der Militärparaden. Der Nationalfeiertag ist der kindlichen Freude, dem Spiel und dem Gemeinschaftsgefühl gewidmet.


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,

Siri & Selma, Dina & Klausbernd
