Know the history.

It is important to know the history of the market where you want to sell your goods and services. Today, communication, information and data spreads around the globe in seconds. News are reported history. Once I put this article online, it is history. Indexing and archiving machines, bots and spiders crawl the internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This globalization is inevitable.

Norway, the way north or Norwegen is the name of the country. This name is not arbitrary or randomly chosen. The video below tells you the background.

Know the culture.

There are two words in the English language that stems from Norwegian, fjord and ski. Norway has a coastline longer than the rest of Europe. The main reason is of course the many fjords that intersect the country where Sognefjorden is 200 Km long. It is said that if you grow mussels in Sognefjorden, it would be enough to feed the whole world.

I made the video below some years ago about Geirangerfjorden, sometimes claimed to be the most beautiful in Norway or even the whole world.

The other word is ski. The cradle of skiing si Morgedal in the Telemark county of Norway. There are a lot of sports related to skiing. Cross country skiing, down hill skiing and ski jumping. Ski flying is a more extreme version of ski jumping. The longest ski jump is as this is written (early 2014) 246.5 m set by Johan Remen Evensen in Vikersund Norway.
