Spring in Norway

For the past few years, I stopped planning for summer vacation because we all know it is not school break yet. So I was so happy when I learned that DepEd adjusted the school calendar this year because when the pandemic happened, ang haba ng school calendar namin. Imagine, yung start ng school year namin is August tapos ang vacation end of June pa. I don’t understand bakit 11 months na pasok namin. Namimiss ko yung 2 months na summer vacation talaga. 

And because of that, whenever my mom asked me kung kelan kami babalik sa Norway? I always say “Ikaw na lang magbakasyon dito”. Kasi naman, ang effort mag-apply ng visa and ang mahal ng airfare tapos one month lang kami, parang sayang. Anyway, at least this year, bakasyon na kami sa June. 

Also, if I ever return to Norway, I prefer the Spring Season, which is March to May, because I like cold weather. Even though I know Spring weather in Norway is unpredictable, I will still choose it over the Summer Season. 

Two years ago, we were lucky because we were in Norway for three months, from March to first week of June so we experienced two seasons which are Winter and Spring. So we witnessed the transition of trees from bare to blossoming trees. This is one thing that amazes me how trees survive the four seasons. 

This trip is memorable because there were so many unexpected events like we had a Glimpse of Northern Lights, not once but twice. 

I’ve said that Spring weather in Norway is unpredictable because you will experience sun, rain, and even snow. Yes, snowfall during Spring in Norway so it is an advantage for us because we can still experience snow. Our last trip was unforgettable because we built a snowman, and we tried skiing and snow sledding.

And lastly, during those months, we celebrated my mom’s birthday, Easter, and the 17th of May. Easter in Norway is a week-long holiday so people usually go to the mountains to have fun in the snow or travel abroad. When we were there during Easter Week, we traveled to Røros, Oslo, and Stugudalen.
