But how about a little later in the year when it's a bit warmer? Remembering chilly Oslo and comments I heard. Nothing negative about Oslo, except some would have preferred a bit warmer weather.
We have a saying in Norway: There's no bad weather, just bad clothing.
Chilly weather isn't a problem if you dress accordingly. ;-)
But for people from warm weather, we don't know how to "dress accordingly". It took me a while to figure out that when I was cold in cold weather, it's not because I'm so weak but because the winter clothes that I buy in warm places are only for looks. The real clothes designed for people in cold weather has little features that help keep body heat in and cold air out, designed for utility rather than style. Even shoes too...
Of course nowadays we can go online and shop. But I tried to make do with what I have already, not wanting to buy pricey things I'd use once a year or less, figuring if I bring all my thick clothes and layer them one on top of the other it would work, but sadly it didn't. : (
My hot tips is layers. Even I do that. I don't do wool, down, fur, etc., but layers are good.
