From the SCI team

Spring has definitely arrived with flowers already breaking through the surface, bright sunny mornings and even a bit of heat from the sun.

When it comes to dressing for the weather in spring don’t trust what you are observing, even sunshine, until you are dressed and outside, as the weather might have changed completely by the time walk through the front door.

Weather and temperatures change quickly, especially in the mountains, so always be prepared and bring warm clothes no matter what it’s like when you set out. Remember to dress in layers, with woolen underwear as your first layer.

If you’re out and about in the city, an umbrella is always a good idea to take with you just in case. Unless it’s very windy of course, then an unbrellais of very little use. Then use a raincoat or windbreaker instead.

Sunglasses are a good idea as it can get very bright, and remember to always use sunscreen if you’re enjoying the sun. Especially in the mountains where there is snow on the ground. The white snow reflects the sun, and its easier to get sunburned.

Also in April, the 2nd part of our new series ´Doing business in Norway´ is  taking place. Here is your chance to learn all about Norwegian business law. Part 2: Norwegian Commercial Law will be held on the 10th of April and is all about business contracts.

Although spring is just around the corner, you can still enjoy skiing opportunities. Check our our ´What´s on´ and ´Sports and Outdoors´section.

For those of you who excel at Norwegian there are lots of interesting meetings on our Norwegian website http://www.naeringsforeningen.no

We wish you all an active and social month! We hope to see you soon at one of our events.
Greetings from the SCI  team Randi, Inger Tone, and all the volunteers
