Living The Norwegian Dream   Catching Cod In Norway In Cod We Trust: Living The Norwegian Dream

Have you ever dreamt of escaping the hustle and bustle of your daily routine to live a simpler life, surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty? Look no further than Norway - the land of fjords, mountains, and, of course, cod.

The Fascinating Lifestyle of Norwegian Fishermen

Norway is not just home to stunning landscapes; it also boasts a rich fishing tradition that has shaped the lives of many locals. In particular, cod fishing holds a special place in the hearts of Norwegian fishermen.

The Norwegian fishing industry is deeply rooted in its culture and history. For generations, entire families have made their living from the icy waters, relying on the abundant cod stocks that have sustained them through the years. Fishing has become not just an occupation but a way of life - a means to connect with nature and find fulfillment in the simplicity of the task.

The Treasure of the Sea

Cod, often referred to as the "treasure of the sea" in Norway, plays a central role in the country's cuisine and economy. The local delicacy, lutefisk, is a traditional dish made from dried cod soaked in lye. It may sound unusual to some, but for Norwegians, it represents a timeless tradition and a way to celebrate their roots.

The importance of cod extends beyond the kitchen. As one of Norway's most valuable exports, cod is a significant contributor to the nation's economy. The process of fishing, processing, and exporting cod supports numerous jobs and drives local businesses in coastal communities.

Living the Dream

For those seeking a slower pace of life and a deep connection with nature, Norway presents an enticing opportunity. The dream of living in a picturesque cabin by the fjords, waking up to the sounds of seagulls, and venturing out to fish for cod becomes a reality.

Imagine spending your days surrounded by breathtaking landscapes, feeling a sense of tranquility as you cast your net into crystal clear waters. The simplicity of this lifestyle allows one to reflect, appreciate the beauty around them, and find genuine fulfillment in the act of fishing.

Living in Norway not only offers an escape from the chaos of modern life but also provides a chance to immerse yourself in a vibrant and welcoming culture. Norwegians embrace their natural surroundings and emphasize the importance of community and sustainable living.

In Norway, the phrase "In Cod We Trust" is not just a catchy slogan but a testament to the deep appreciation and respect Norwegians have for their fishing heritage. If you've ever yearned for a life of simplicity and close connection with nature, where cod fishing is both a livelihood and a source of fulfillment, then living the Norwegian dream might be the adventure you've been seeking.

Eric Dregni's great-grandfather Ellef fled Norway in 1893 when it was the poorest country in Europe. More than one hundred years later, his great-grandson traveled back to find that--mostly due to oil and natural gas discoveries--it is now the richest. The circumstances of his return were serendipitous, as the notice that Dregni won a Fulbright Fellowship to go there arrived the same week as the knowledge that his wife Katy was pregnant. Braving a birth abroad and benefiting from a remarkably generous health care system, the Dregnis' family came full circle when their son Eilif was born in Norway.

In this cross-cultural memoir, Dregni tells the hair-raising, hilarious, and sometimes poignant stories of his family's yearlong Norwegian experiment. Among the exploits he details are staying warm in a remote grass-roofed hytte (hut), surviving a dinner of rakfisk (fermented fish) thanks to 80-proof aquavit, and identifying his great-grandfather's house in the Lusterfjord only to find out it had been crushed by a boulder and then swept away by a river. To subsist on a student stipend, he rides the meat bus to Sweden for cheap salami with a busload of knitting pensioners. A week later, he and his wife travel to the Lofoten Islands and gnaw on klippefisk (dried cod) while cats follow them through the streets.

Dregni's Scandinavian roots do little to prepare him and his family for the year in Trondheim eating herring cakes, obeying the conformist Janteloven (Jante's law), and enduring the m酶rketid (dark time). In Cod We Trust is one Minnesota family's spirited excursion into Scandinavian life. The land of the midnight sun is far stranger than they previously thought, and their encounters show that there is much we can learn from its unique and surprising culture.
