Nordkapp Film Festival
Monday, 10 September 2012
I arrived in Tromso and am having dinner with the festival organizers. ¬†Had a brief tour of the local area. ¬†I must say that Norway makes my heart sing. ¬†Its beauty is breathtaking and its people are open and friendly. ¬†Also the fish is the best in the world. ¬†Fish restaurant for me tonight.
For the next several weeks this blog will be a sort of travelogue along with musing and observations in my consulting and teaching travels.
Here are a couple of observations from the plane:
1. ¬†Nordic men are stunningly handsome. Just sayin’
2. ¬†Scandinavians love America. I sat next to two Norwegian plumbers on the plan. ¬†They were part of a group of 15 plumbers who were wrapping up a trip to New York. ¬†They saved their money and met company performance goals– so off all the plumbers went as a company reward. ¬†(Would this happen in America as a reward?) They had a fabulous time and the guy I sat next to is eager to return for a longer stay with his wife.
3. ¬†The Norwegians are open and friendly observation is totally true. ¬†Tall blond and handsome guy sitting one row forward helped me put my iPhone on non-roaming International mode so I wouldn’t rack up thousand of AT&T charge while in Europe.
