1. 30 Things You Should Know Before Moving To Norway

Our number one post of the year was so popular that a couple of fellow bloggers and webmasters decided to scrape it and post it on their own sites without permission.

Really enjoyed your Lyon article — Lyon was one big surprise to me back in 2011, in a good sense of course! I love the fact that you don´t have to shell out crazy money to eat superb food in this city, not to mention the quality of the food markets..It´s a foodie paradise without question:)

Thanks for the info on moving to Norway – I just met two traveling Swedish guys who said “Even we can’t afford Norway” so it was nice to see some practical tips on making the move happen (and enjoying a visit there).
