Things we love:

It's full of vikings. The bars stay open till 3am. They love to drink. They are all mad. They get our sense of humour. They love their statues! They love meatballs. They eat reindeer and horse.

Things we wish we'd known:

Buying alcohol is near impossible (only beer can be bought in the supermarket and wines and spirits are sold in a special shop. On a Saturday you can’t buy alcohol after 6pm.) It's illegal to drink outside in parks etc. It ain't cheap (beers can be as much as £12!) In the winter it only gets light for 4 hours of the day (but in the spring and summer it doesn't get dark until midnight... nice).
