Previously, I introduced you to another part of beautiful Norway, Lillehammer. I was fortunate to spend a glorious 3 1/2 weeks touring Denmark, Norway and Sweden, so I got a taste of the Norwegian way of life.

Since I traveled during the summer, it was as they say, “The Land of the Midnight Sun“. One could go for a walk, a boat ride, see a show – 0r anything else outdoors in the middle of the night in the daylight. This was a new experience for me, as it was a way to pack more into my trip — the only problem was that I was accustomed to going to sleep around 9pm!

Norway offers beautiful crystal clear lakes, sparkling larger-than-life fjords, quaint villages, and picturesque farmland. It is absolutely breathtaking.

Please experience this awesome country, along with some hearty laughs, by watching Thomas Hellum’s TED Talk, The world’s most boring television…and why it’s hilariously addictive.

Do you appreciate the way that this team was innovative in its creativity for creating the concept of slow television?

What do you think of the idea?

Do you think slow television could be one way to slow down the pace of life and relax?

Do you think this could be effective in other countries?
