About the Author

Originally from Northampton, England, David Nikel has lived in Norway since 2011. He first moved to Oslo in pursuit of riches in the information and communication technology industry. Inspired by the magnificent fjords, dramatic mountains, and dancing northern lights, he started writing. He hasn't looked back since. David now travels the country helping Norwegian professionals master the English language. As a result, he sees more of the country than most natives do. On these travels, he met his Mexican partner and they have made a third-culture home together in Trondheim, the former Viking capital of Norway, where they speak a confusing mixture of English, Spanish, and Norwegian. To keep track of his adventures, David publishes to blogs about expat life and travel in Norway and has written regular columns for the Telegraph and the Norwegian American newspapers. He has also contributed destination features for the magazines of British Airways, Norwegian Air, airBaltic, and Finnair. As much as he enjoys life in Norway, David hasn't yet fully assimilated. His attempts at cross-country skiing resemble a spider on roller-skates--much to the enjoyment of his new Norwegian friends.
