In Norway, we find great comfort in a traditional song where the refrain roughly translates to “You shall have a day tomorrow, that clean and unused stands, with blank white sheets and fresh new crayons too”. Meaning that there is hope. And that better days will come.
"You shall have a day tomorrow, that clean and unused stands,
with blank white sheets and fresh new crayons too,
and you can then correct them, errors of the day before,
and you'll face tomorrow's evening with joy.
And if you cannot do it, and all is just as sad,
still the pine-wind shall comfort you just as now:
You shall have a day tomorrow, that clean and unused stands,
with blank white sheets and fresh new crayons too."
So please join us in dreaming, with these comforting words by the famous Norwegian songwriter Alf Prøysen.
Because Norway is still right here, just waiting for you.
Our air will be just as fresh, our hikes just as iconic, and our coffee just as good.
The selfie opportunities at Trolltunga will be just as spectacular.
The urban city life will be vibrant, the saunas hot, and the water just as cold.
The famous cider from Hardanger will be crisp and the seafood fresh.
The festivals will be loud, the glamping glamourous, and the valleys lush.
The midnight sun will still be golden, and the auroras will keep dancing, dressed in green.
The Viking culture will remain fascinating, and the new Munch Museum will be ready for visitors.
The music will be playing, the slopes will be groomed, and the waffles will still be freshly made.
Until then, keep dreaming. Check out our top ten destinations and find inspiration for your upcoming adventures. We will wait for you right here. Because this too shall pass.
