Hello, I am Ida.

Here you can see a part of Narvik.

Hello everyone, my name is Ida Karlsen. A few of my relatives is members of the steemit community and they have been recommending this to me. I decided since both my father @harkar and my older sister @majakarlsen have created a blog that I had to try this out and create my own. I think this looks very interesting and exciting.

Me enjoying the beautiful weather this easter.

So why not start with letting you know me a little bit? I live outside a small city called Narvik north in Norway, and I have been living here my whole life. I am 17 years old, turning 18 in September. Since I was younger I have always liked being active. I have danced ballet for several years, but quit taking classes after the last Christmas. I still like to dance and are now enjoying watching my little sister performances as audience, as well as dancing a bit at my own. I am currently studying at High School. Besides school I work in a clothing store and spend a lot of time with my friends and family. I also like to hike, bake and take pictures. My dad is very good at it and I get some inspiration from him, and also some help to get better at photography.

Me at a hike last august leaning against the wind on a rainy day.

I am excited to join this community and I am looking forward to find out more abut it and the people here, as well as sharing things from my life here.

Best regards Ida.

Hi Ida! What a beautiful place you live in! I have heard of your town because I do have a Norwegian friend here in Maine who is also from the north in Norway.

Welcome! It is so nice to have you with us here. Please let me know if you have any questions by posting them here, and I will help if I can. Good luck!

Thank you very much, and thank you for your helpfulness!

You are very welcome. Say, out of curiosity...has all your snow melted yet? Do you have any kind of growing season, or is summer too short for crops?

The snow has melted mostly everywhere except up in the mountains. The summer has not fully began (it is more late spring now), so it is still a bit early for crops.

There is still a little snow on our highest peak here in Maine (Mount Katahdin, 5280 feet) but the snow has been gone everywhere else now for three weeks. Soon our farmers will plant. They are already plowing. What do your farmers grow there?

The farmers is starting to plant potatoes and carrots here now when weather is beginning to get a bit warmer. :)

Thank you, Ida. Tubers...just like we must grow here in our sandy, rocky soil. It sounds a lot like northern Maine where you are. Thanks for taking the time to reply.

Good luck!

Velkommen til steemit! Upvoted & Followed!

Tusen takk!

Welcome to Steemit Ida! Jeg heter Anniza or jeg studerer Norsk. I'm very interested in the clothing store you mentioned, maybe you can share more about it? Steemit is indeed exciting, you get to meet new people and see other people's experiences and their daily lives. Joining contests is also fun and very rewarding.

My best friend is half Norwegian and lives in Fredrikstad, thus why I'm trying to finally learn Norwegian. I've also been trying to find Norwegian friends but they are quite rare in my side of the world. I hope you can be one of them :D

Enjoy Steemit! Lykke til!

Hello Anniza! I love to meet new people and would like to be your friend. :D How fun that you are learning Norwegian, if there is anything I can help you with I am more than happy to help! Have you been in Norway before?
Your posts is very interesting and I am looking forward to follow you here, and to read more about you and the country you are living in.

That''s soooo great! I'll make sure I'll ask questions when I need help. And no I haven't been to Norway yet, sadly, it's always been my best friend coming here from Norway each year. I'm so glad you found them interesting! I write a lot of poetry and there are much much more that I need to write about. I look forward to your posts as well! :D

How fun that you are having such a good contact with each other, and that he is visiting you every year. :D

Hei Ida og velkommen til steemit, så artig å se deg også her. Flott intro, jeg gleder meg til å følge deg videre😀

Tusen takk Heidi, blir veldig gøy å følge deg også :D

Great to see you on steemit Ida! Looking forward to follow you😀

Thank you, I am looking forward to follow you to! :D

It is so fun to start our steemit adventure together! I’m looking forward to follow you and see your development on the platform from scratch ❤️

Yes! It is very fun that we can start this together, and learn from other people here and also from eachother❤️

Narvik indeed looking very majestic, which part of Norway is it located at?

Narvik is a small city located north in Norway right above the arctic circle. It is a part of the county Nordland.

then it has high chance of the Aurora might shows up during winter? or perhaps you have seen it too many times

Yes in the wintertime it shows up quite often as long as there is no clouds. It is not all the time very much of it at once, but when it is, it’s very beautiful :)
