I am studying in Grenoble at the moment and I applied to do a year studying on the Erasmus program in Trondheim, Norway next year... Today I found out I got one of the two places available to go, woohoo!
To be honest I don't know all that much about the country and have a lot of (probably stereotypical) ideas about what it is going to be like... First off, I know it is gong to be very dark in the winter and there will be some time when I probably wont be able to ride my bike but we will survive. Oh and I am not so fussed about drinking alcohol which always seems to be the 'the country is bloody expensive' example that gets brought up, I imagine there will be plenty of other things I like that will make me wince at the price though.
But what can people tell me about Norway in general, and more specifically Trondheim. I am evidently looking mostly for information based around mountain biking and the outdoor but I would also be interested in things outside of MTB to visit.
If anyone has any information on things liiiiike....
- Online maps
- Online bike forums or mountain bike websites
- Where is good for riding
- Any riding groups in Trondheim?
- Places you have visited that would be worth it or stories you have from visiting there
- Anyone live there even?
I know some things are a bit of a long shot but still worth asking. Oh and I will be there for a year so a decent amount of time to explore!
