Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, United States, United Kingdom, Belgium, Netherlands, South Africa, Slovenia etc… are the countries I have visited earlier but the most unique country I visited this time is Norway. The country of heaven, the country of kindness, the country of apex in development, the happiest country in the world bla.. bla..bla…all I heard about is a true facts once I experienced myself when first I arrived in Norway on July 13. It was so kind that professor was eager waiting in the airport to welcome me. Almost 30Km drives, we reached in a place near a jungle. Helmut stopped the car, got out from car and told, ‘welcome babu, this is your place’. At the beginning, I am sucked, watched all four directions if there are any houses nearby. The house is located near the jungle and no more houses attached on it. I felt like how could I stay here alone? The ground floor is under-ground. It looks like a simple one flat house what we called Katero (कटेरो) in Nepalese language. When entered into the house, socked again by seeing its amazing decoration and furnishing/management. My feeling is directly connected and felt like no more fear of living alone. Prof. Martina introduced all the features inside the house and left me to pick me back to campus on Tuesday morning. Sidhartha (Rita Kumar’s Son) picked me up next day to market. He helped me out for bus card, phone recharge and buy some food stuffs.

Everything managed on Tuesday (17th July) at office including office access, library access etc…at Department of ProductDesign, NTNU. Also Met & greet HoD Dr. Ole Andreas Alsos and other friends at office. But university is on vacation, and hence not much student’s flow at the department.
Being not familiar with travel and locations, I was having little fear about how to reach campus by
