- Visit from volunteers and creative problem-solving abroad -
This week we met new volunteers from Svelgen, a town in the same province as Nordfjordeid. We did not know about them for a long time because they have not been to the on-arrival seminar in Balestrand in September. But since we received information that we are not the only volunteers around here and they know about us, we wanted to meet each other. Actually they are even more isolated in their place as we are and very happy to do and see something else. And they have cars available 24h, which they want to use to pick us up and explore Norway in the near future. Hopefully it works out and I won’t have too much do on weekends (I’m going dinner driving quite often), but Astrid is already working on that one. At least I have connections to Grand Canary now – is that cool or is it cool? ;)
Besides that I found out that necessity is the mother of invention during this week. My hair needed to be cut already weeks ago, but I just did not want to spend half my wage on a hairdresser, which is incredibly expensive in Norway. So I turned our bathroom in a hairdressing salon together with Lena, an Austrian au pair I got to know here. A few YouTube videos, broken scissors and a lot of laughing later we finished or rather Lena did – and it looks fine, even if she did not have any experience before! As you can see, creativity is everything :D
Ha ein fin dag!
