Summer vacation started for many

The school year has ended and for many Norwegian families summer vacation started this weekend. However, the main three-week summer holidays for most Norwegians begin next weekend.

But already this weekend the line-ups of traffic out of the larger cities were longer than usual, and with the rather cool and wet June at home, many had booked flights to wamer lands.

Still. for many, the summer vacation begins at the weekend cabin, be it at the coast or in the mountains, or visiting friends and relatives.

However, the main exodus comes next wekend, when three weeks of "Fellesferie" (joint vacation) begins. A time also called Norwegian national paralysis, when many shops and production facilities close down altogether, and you may have problems finding a plumber or an electrician, if you need one in a hurry.
