Today we took what the norwegians call a "harry tur" to Sweden. Many people here find this to be bad taste(cheating the norwegian government out of tax) but if liking a bargain(on average 37% cheaper) makes me tacky, then tacky I am!
We drive about 90 mins to Sweden and shop at a (pretty vile) mall a few miles over the border. The Swedish Kroner is pretty weak right now so you get a very good deal if you pay with norwegian kroner.
We now have fridge/freezer/cupboards full of (superior to norwegian) Swedish goods and Henrik (aka The candy man) now has enough sweets to last him til Christmas. I don't even mind when we get stopped at customs on the way home(every,single time!) only for them to discover we are not smuggling cigarettes or alchohol but infact have a car loaded up with haribo! Long live the Harry tur!
