Travel Recommendations

Is April (easter time) a good time to visit Norway? If yes, what are some of the places you would recommend? I’m looking for hikes/ national parks experience and don’t want to spend much time in city.

Nervous to say since it’s so un-touristy but Lofoten Islands for beautiful hiking! I can give you specific ones if interested. We rented a car in Svolvaer and would drive to 2-3 hikes a day up there. We then spent some time in Bergen and highly recommend. From there we did the Trolltunga all day hike that is instagram famous, so very touristy, still very pretty but I’d prioritize Lofoten hikes if I had to choose. We then went to Balestrand for a relaxing couple nights which I cannot recommend enough if you like quaint / quiet / pretty (stay at the Balestrand Midtnes Hotel on the water side & there’s a great cider house, but otherwise not too much in town). We went for Memorial Day last year and the weather was ideal, and up in the north the sun doesn’t set which could make it hard for sleeping (good for late hikes), maybe April would better? Not positive about weather at that time is all.

It’s a bit too early I’d say- although this winter’s been mild. Most Norwegians go skiing in Easter. The weather is very volatile this time of year. All the hiking spots you may be thinking of ( like Trolltunga are closed) May/June on the other hand are the best !

During phone screens do recruiters ask your current salary and desired salary range? If so what do you say ? I’d assume for current salary use total comp and for desired add 10% for the minimum

Anyone ever deal/dealing with severe physical symptoms of anxiety? Weakness, constant tension/pressure in back of head. All medical evaluations have come back normal. This makes no sense.

So, thoughts on starting own firm right now. Laid off and doesn't seem to be tons of firms recruiting. I think I can start off for 3k with my partner and try and kill whatever we can get.

Do you think parents should be held accountable accountable for their children attending to remote learning? If school buildings were safe and a parent never got their children to school, eventually it would raise a social services flag to make a home visit. Shouldn’t the same, or similar treatment, be given to parents who don’t attend to making sure their children are attending to remote learning.?
