Living in Norway

Hello, folks! Welcome to my school blog! As the title says, this blog will contain information about the life in Norway. If you are interested in how life in this fabolous country is, lean back and enjoy your reading.

My name is Dimitrije Obradovic and I am from Serbia. Although I have been living in Norway for fully seven years and have Norwegian citizenship, I will never forget my home country. I was nine years old when I left Serbia with my father, my stepmother, my little brother and my little sister. At that time, I knew only a few things about Norway: I knew the country where we were going to was located in North- Europe and I knew the climate is colder than in Serbia, but I didn't know how the people are like. I didn't know if they will accept me or not.

In 2005 we lived in a small town called Kyrksæterøra. This town is located a few hundred kilometers away from one of the largest cities in Norway, Trondheim. The 29th of May 2006, ten months after we moved to Norway, my little sister Sara was born. In 2007, one year and four months after Sara's birth, on 30th of September, my little brother Marko was born. The same year in November we moved to West - Norway. We now lived in a huge house in Lye, Time Kommune. Lye was a small place located only 30 kilometers from Stavanger. I stayed in Lye for two more years before we mover to our current place. This moving was the hardest because I had many friends in Lye and now I had to leave them behind.

I am now 16 years old and I'm going in Sandvika videregående skole (Sandvika High School). I live with my father, my stepmother, my two younger brothers and my two younger sisters. My 14 year old brother and I have the same mother. Our mother lives in Serbia and we visit her every summer and winter.  
The other three kids we are living with are our half- brothers and half- sisters because we only have a common father, not a common mother. But enought about my life, let's talk about the life in Norway. 

Life in Norway is fantastic! You are free to do whatever you want to as long if it's not against the law and as long as you don't hurt anyone. People in Norway are very kind. They are perhaps the kindest people on this planet. They really like to help and they would stop every time you have to cross a road because they are never in a hurry. Many people think about Norway as a cold country, which in fact is true. But here in Oslo, the temperature can be up to 28 degrees celcius during the summer and down to -25 degrees celcius during the winter. These weather conditions are ideal for skiing during the winter and swimming during the summer.
