Some background information about where I’ve lived:
I am born and raised in an extremely smal village (we are talking more square kilometers than people here). If I had to take the bus somewhere, I had one bus going in both possible directions every day. Until my 11th year of education, I had never been in a class with more than 20 pupils. 15 minutes of driving to the nearest store that sold anything at all. Two hours of driving to the nearest McDonalds. 75 minutes with bus to the nearest secondary school, and 6 hours with bus to the secondary school I attended (this one being the reason I moved out before I turned 16, which is completely normal where I come from).
As I’m now attending the University in Trondheim, I actually have to live in Trondheim as well. This is weird for me. There’s people everywhere, I have 2-6 buses leaving every hour and I can actually walk to the postal office to pick up packages. I have done some slightly embarrasing things already:
- Had to use google maps to find my way around town
- Ended up missing a bus because I had no idea you actually have to signal them to stop
- Took a shortcut through someones driveway and ended up getting an old woman yelling at me
- Got some bad advice on where IKEA was and endep taking a bus that stopped 2 miles away from IKEA, which I had to walk.
- Talking to myself while walking around (too used to being alone while walking)
