What is typically Nordic? What characterizes our history, development and who we are today?

I'm a youtuber and podcaster plagued with a curiosity for all things sustainable, fair-trade & plant-based. I like to call it conscious living.

I've been plant-based, leaning vegan for three years with a recent interest in political fashion. It simply fascinates me how we can all learn to support businesses and institutions that lift up ot ...

"A Happy Boy" was written in 1859 and 1860. It is, in my estimation, Bjørnson's best story of peasant life. In it the author has succeeded in drawing the characters with remarkable distinctness, while his profound psychological insight, his perfectly artless simplicity of style, and his thorough sympathy with the hero and his surroundings are nowhere more apparent. This view is sustained by the great popularity of "A Happy Boy" throughout Scandinavia. (From the Preface) Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson ...

You might remember earlier this year we reviewed the Tubervol 2018 to somewhat positive reviews. After all this is an unholy marriage of lambic with Belgian blonde ale.
