According to another one of the magazine’s Editors and Managing Partners, Kristie Dugan, the goal of Our Amazing Norway is to make foreigners feel more like locals and less like outsiders.
“We know all the struggles that come from being a foreigner living in Norway. We know the disillusionment that happens when all the magical fairy dust fades away and reality strikes. So we wanted to offer you our experience, our knowledge and what we have learned the hard way and hope it makes your life in Norway easier,” said Dugan. “Whether you just moved to Norway or you have been here for 20 years, there is something in this magazine for everyone. It’s our dream to inspire and uplift you. It is our wish for you that everyday living in Norway begins to look more like that dream you first had when you moved here.”
