Our Little Rookery

Expat life, parenting, and family travel blog by a multicultural/multilingual (Mexican/American) family living in Oslo and traveling in Europe and beyond with a toddler and French Bulldog.


Life: A Scot in Norway

Swapping the carefree life of a bachelor in Scotland for that of a married family man in Norway (his words) this ScotNor shares his life via the medium of beautiful photography and stories of travel around the globe.


Heart My Backpack

Caught between two cultures, Silvia straddles both Norwegian and American worlds, whilst living in Norway with her English boyfriend (they met in Thailand, fell in love in Laos - it's only to be expected of this globetrotting backpack wielder.) With posts ranging from unique travel destinations to the emotions of a wanderluster, Heart My Backpack is a great read.


Thanks For The Food

Sharing her passions for Norwegian food and her adopted home of Stavanger, Whitney writes about her life via the medium of the plate. Loving the honest flavours of her new home has helped immeasurably to settle in and integrate as an expat. She has a section on her blog called 'the expat files' which make for intriguing perusing.



This blog's byline reads: paternity leave with an odd bit of science, skepticism, cookery and ethics thrown in, providing a neat tie-in of the author's favourite topics. This Englishman believes he has Norway deep within his soul and he shares his experiences with his little one, sweetly nicknamed LykkeTroll, and family-style adventures.


Frog in a Fjord

A Frog in a Fjord is essential reading for anyone looking to move to Norway. Answering all of the questions expats think but often can't quite put into words, the posts cover everything from the Norwegian language to dating the locals. Lorelou orginates from Marseille and presents each topic with a great sense of humour that makes for very easy reading (especially the post on how to make Norwegian friends.)


My Little Norway

My Little Norway is a showcase of what makes the Kingdom of the North so unique. It's full of newsworthy stories, tips for surviving in the lengthy season when the sun disappears, and a section on immigration experience. Well written and easy to read, this is a fascinating blog to bookmark.


An Expat's Norway

G moved to Norway for love, but this expat had international blood streaming through her veins even before she left. Writing on a variety of topics, An Expat's Norway is a window onto Nordic life, down to the nitty-gritty of the Vikings' cold slumber habits - even sleeping with the window open at -15 C.


Snow In Tromso

Snow in Tromso is the life and travels of Scandinavia, from the unique viewpoint of a German lady living in the arctic circle. Learning Norwegian, translating between 3 languages, studying native cultures, sharing incredible photography, tasting coffee cheese, deciding that brown cheese isn't for her and a litany of other adventures can all be found in this personal travel blog, all written with a lovely touch of personality.


The Girl Behind The Red Door

Audrey is a Californian girl in Olso. Leaving behind her sunny birthplace for the striking beauty of Norway has changed both her own life and that of her family. Sharing her love for the written word, the breathtaking escapades they make time for and the lessons learned over years of expat life, The Girl Behind The Red Door is a lovely insight to living in the uniquely Norwegian way of life.
