Changed and unchanged, expected and unexpected, familiar and unfamiliar, loss and gain. She will write in both English and Norwegian, hoping that fellow repats, or ex-repats, or expats who might become repats, or just anyone who would enjoy her writings and topics, will find their way to this site. And maybe the odd Norwegian who could benefit from seeing the country through the keyboard of someone whos been away for a long time. The repat has a journalist background.
