syttende mai...

... which means 17th of May, and a very, very important date in Norway. 17th of May is Norways national day, and to say it is celebrated is an understatement! Norwegians go all in on 17th of May.
Here are my pics from that day:

almost everyone was wearing these traditional Norwegian costumes, they where beautiful

we had also bought ourself a flag to wave in the crowd outside of the royal palace

this is actually the Crown Prince Haakon and his wife Mette Marit (which I think is really cool)

they where selling these ridiculous expensive balloons, they where pretty, but we made no purchase

afterwards we ate strawberries and whipped cream... a pretty good 17th of May
