After a while and that day he referred to as me again to inform me that he had discovered me a job and he requested to come back to Norway as quickly as attainable for an interview. after all it was nice information to get such a job, particularly since i’ve by no means been to norway earlier than, i additionally like to maneuver to new international locations and get new adventurer jobs, i’ve it thanks very a lot for his favour.
I talked with my household about this new job, they agreed to maneuver with me there and actually it was so good too so we began to gather our baggage, search for airplane tickets and since I’m European, I can transfer shortly with my household and simply to all international locations in Europe.
Have you learnt? I began my journey in Norway and that i went there too i discovered my job however at first i used to be dwelling with a query in my thoughts it made me confused, earlier than i heard about norway the revenue of a traditional individual is so excessive and it’s such an costly nation and it was so fascinating for me to see and understand how these Norwegians stay at such a excessive way of life, I questioned if Norwegians stay at this excessive stage it’s as a result of they stay of their nation and it’s wealthy nation however what about foreigners there how they stay?
It was fascinating to seek out a solution to this query in order that at work I combine with foreigners and ask them how they stay in Norway? It was a giant shock!! after I realized from them that life is very easy and never costly in any respect.
The fact I discovered in Norway, everybody can stay and not using a massive finances not like I imagined earlier than, dwelling there’s not costly in any respect!
WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT LIFE IS NOT EXPENSIVE AT ALL?
#Low-cost For Meals And Meals.
In Norway they stay about 1 million foreigners and totally different nationalities, the wage of those folks is totally different, so everybody’s finances can also be totally different, so whenever you stroll into the grocery store to purchase meals, you’re there discover totally different costly and one other low cost. they’ve two firms considered one of which is named PREMIER PRIX all of them promote the merchandise so low cost from the meatloaf they promote it low cost for instance yow will discover the value of the bread it prices round 40.00 KOR it is about $4.00 yow will discover bread by these firms with KOR 7.00 lower than $1 they usually do the identical with all merchandise.
By the best way, KORON is the title of the native forex in Norway and about 10.00 KOR is equal to $1.00.
Additionally, if you happen to wished to purchase a burger from Macdonalds as a quick meals meal, it prices lower than $1.00.
# Low-cost to purchase garments and footwear.
In Norway in public locations in each metropolis or city you need to discover a shopping mall or mall and it is stuffed with totally different garments and footwear shops and yow will discover every little thing there so prime quality with manufacturers and at such low cost costs additionally every so often can go for a stroll round and discover massive reductions in every single place so you should purchase three items of any sort of garments resembling pants or t-shirts, purchase three and solely pay for 2 items and get the third free. such reductions all 12 months spherical in winter, summer time and in all cities round Norway.
# Low-cost to get public transport.
In Norway, the conventional ticket worth for buses, metros and trams is KOR 50.00. It’s round 5.00 USD for one ticket.
and there if you happen to purchased a bus ticket you can too use it whenever you take a metro or a tram however you’ve got a restricted time for about half-hour you should utilize it after half-hour it will likely be expired .
Once in a while you may get many reductions on these tickets and low cost gives, for instance in the summertime you should purchase a bus move for the entire summer time at such an inexpensive worth and the time period of the summer time about 3 months in the past additionally bus drivers can give you low cost offers whenever you purchase ticket they will supply weekly ticket so low cost you should purchase it and use all of it week after all , you’ll save your cash.
By the best way, right here I’m speaking concerning the worth of contained in the bus in every metropolis, you’ll be able to solely pay KOR 50.00 to get a ticket and every so often they’ve gives for passengers, as I’ve already talked about. However if you happen to wished to maneuver to a different metropolis, perhaps you’ll journey there by prepare or by bus, it has one other mounted worth not low cost and with out reductions, for instance if you happen to wished to journey from Oslo to Sandfjord by prepare or by bus it has the identical bills the ticket prices about 300 KOR.
My recommendation do not take into consideration dialing a TAXI there as a result of actually it is so costly.
Dial solely with public transport, it’s cheaper than taxi and at all times gives gives and reductions to avoid wasting you numerous.
In the event you wished to have a automotive there, amm, shopping for a automotive in Norway too is affordable, if you happen to wished to purchase a used automotive as much as 2005 mannequin it is low cost after that it will likely be dearer relying the situation of the vehicles.
After all, if it’s not essential to purchase a automotive in Norway, it’s a massive mistake, why?
1- They’ve a variety of taxes plus automotive insurance coverage that you need to pay yearly and this technique throughout Europe not simply Norway.
2-They’ve the roads there not free, whenever you drive in every metropolis, you discover a number of locations have gates with cameras to take a photograph on your automotive quantity, every time you drive to go to town , you need to pay by payments come to your home after some time but it surely’s free whenever you exit by automotive, but it surely’s so dangerous I did not prefer it additionally I by no means noticed this technique in Germany , in Romania, in Poland and even in Sweden, so if the automotive shouldn’t be essential for you, I imply if you don’t use it on your work there or if you happen to stay alone with out household, it’s higher take public transport, it is my opinion, solely purchase and use a automotive for your loved ones or work as a result of on this case you’ll be able to cowl all of the bills he wants.
3-Possibly you’re asking me about benzene there sure it’s so costly however I additionally suppose benzene costs are excessive everywhere in the world so that’s the reason it hasn’t it would not matter whether or not or not you’ve got a automotive in Norway.
By the best way, in Norway you may get the most cost effective worth for benzene solely on Sundays, you’ll be able to go to any benzene station to purchase cheaper.
4-Be aware that repairing vehicles there’s additionally costly for spare components, so watch out and give it some thought earlier than shopping for a automotive.
# Low-cost whenever you lease an condo or a home.
In Norway, if you happen to wished to lease an condo, the value of a traditional condo shouldn’t be that prime and there’s additionally not a giant distinction in worth from metropolis to metropolis in Oslo Like in a different metropolis, the value is round $750 per 30 days + electrical energy and water, by the So you need to pay a deposit for one month or perhaps extra in keeping with your settlement with the proprietor of the condo, all flats are right into a luxurious way of life. giant flats, occupied by every little thing you want simply take the important thing to the condo, go purchase your merchandise, put them within the fridge or within the kitchen, activate the TV or sleep.
However perhaps whenever you take a look at the $750 price ticket, you suppose oh! it is so, over there that individuals from Jap Europe go to work they go in teams of three to 4 folks to lease an condo and stay collectively so that they share the value of the month-to-month rental after which they stay additionally in luxurious condo with such low cost worth.
Some folks might learn this text and say that I used to be the one one who wrote about life in Norway, however for them they may solely go as vacationers, so does this text inform them one thing helpful ?
YES as a result of now we have a number of corresponding factors which now we have already talked about resembling meals, garments, transport, taxi and by all means, this info may also assist vacationers.
Solely vacationer, he won’t go to stay in an condo or a home as a result of the rental system in Norway doesn’t permit to lease an condo for one or two weeks and if he finds that it’s going to price a lot cash for this era, the rental system there’s annual and generally could make contracts for five years, so I believe that the vacationer won’t ever go to stay in an condo and it’s sure that he may have beforehand reserved a lodge earlier than touring.
Concerning the costs of lodges in Norway a bit costly, however I believe that if the vacationer decides to go to Norway for sightseeing, he can discover a appropriate reservation lodge and may discover out the costs on the Web and select one of the best one for its finances.
The creator of this text has lived and labored in Norway for over 3 years, discovered the Norwegian language to talk and write it fluently, moved to work in lots of cities at lodge branches all through the Norway, in Oslo, Tonsberg and Sandfjord. For household causes, he needed to briefly end his job and return house.
By the best way, he liked Norway a lot and can return there quickly to work and stay.
