Hello, Hei,

My name is Jill. Thanks for visiting Norway Times! 

This is me in the winter.

I was born in South Africa, raised in Toronto (Canada), and then spent a few years living in France. After returning to Canada in 2008, I assumed I was home for good. But love knows no borders, and in 2015 I moved to Norway to be with my Norwegian husband and begin this new Nordic adventure.

Norway Times is a collection of stories about my personal experiences of life in Norway. The things I write about are true and, I hope, sometimes funny (mostly at my expense). I want to engage and entertain you with many of the things I have found to be wonderful, weird, hilarious and intriguing about this land “north of the wall”.

I try to post new articles every Friday, or…. it might be every second Friday… or maybe every couple months… (because I’m sometimes away from my computer, learning my Norsk, or skiing, or trying to soak up some sun) 😉

Please be a part of my world!  Just enter your email below to get posts sent straight to your mailbox. Magic!

Tusen takk!

  2. Jill, I so enjoy your blog. The man in my life (also a Canadian) lives in Oslo where I (American from the US) visit frequently. He is fluent, and I do my best, but…well you know. I was going to write a bit i Norsk, but my damned American keyboard can’t put a little zero over the A, crowd together an A and E, OR put a line through an O. I look forward to reading your next post. Lynn
