Guest post: Sindre from Norway in Florida

Hello everyone! Today I have a guest post written by a friend, the Norwegian that I lived with in Norway and recently came to live with me here in Orlando, Florida. He’s going to tell us a little about what it was like for a Norwegian like him to live in Florida for two-and-a-half weeks!

This will likely be from around the second week of May until the first week of August, so another three months! The kind Norwegian family that took me in last time will be getting another visit from me, and I’m very excited! I wonder if when I get back this time I’ll experience reverse culture shock again? Who knows, but I’m eager to find out!
