What should I pack when moving to Oslo?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Oslo to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Oslo, it is important to pack warm clothing, as the climate is cold and wet. A good waterproof jacket and boots are essential for the winter months. It is also important to bring a good supply of sunscreen and sunglasses, as the sun can be strong during the summer months. Additionally, it is a good idea to bring a few items of traditional Norwegian clothing, such as a bunad, to fit in with the locals. Finally, it is important to bring any necessary documents, such as a passport and visa, to ensure a smooth transition to your new home," said a member in Oslo, Norway.

"I wish I had brought more clothes, more kitchen stuff like pots and pans(too expensive here) and my skis- they were not cheap to buy! I wish I had left my small kitchen appliances- I brought voltage converters and they are a pain, it would have been easier to just buy Norwegian ones. I would not have brought so many shoes- coming from Houston I have a lot of sandals and heels, both are impractical to wear most of the year," remarked another expat who made the move to Oslo, Norway.
