Are Norwegians close to each other? bc in here everyone are in each others lives u are never alone even if u want to.
It's quiet and peaceful. And, to your standards, pretty lonely. Most greet their neighbours when they see them, but very rarely spend time with them. Families are often separate these days and kids often live in different cities from their parents. Loneliness is certainly more widespread here. Never alone even if you want to? Not a description of Norway, that's for sure. And I'm not just talking about myself. People coming to Norway from other countries often mentions this, with regret. Except for the northern part. They are much better at visiting each other unannounced or striking up conversations with strangers up there.
