We take this day very seriously.
So seriously in fact we start celebrating it the day before, on the 16th May.
Most of the people that I know of in my hometown of Bergen will then wake up on the 17th of May with a massive hangover, get in their national custome, (bunad) and head in to the city to watch the procession and eat as many ice creams as humanly possible.
It is truly an amazing experience! Especially in my home town of Bergen. Just make sure to bring an umbrella as the weather as always is very unpredictable but the atmosphere more than makes up for it.
I had a slightly more different day here on the island.
Had some windblown surf today and shared the waves with 1 Finland girl, 2 boys from Norway, 1 Swiss girl and 1 Aussie girl. Big change from yesterdays sole surf.
I would love some "rommegrot" and "spekeskinke", but fish and salad will do for today and some chocolate pie.
To everyone back home: Hope you're having a great day!
