Originally from Northampton, England, David Nikel has lived in Norway since 2011. He moved to Oslo in pursuit of riches in the ICT industry, but was quickly inspired by the magnificent fjords, dramatic mountains and dancing northern lights to start writing. He hasn’t looked back since.
David now travels the country helping Norwegian professionals master the English language, and as a result 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, speaking a confusing mixture of English, Norwegian and Spanish.
To keep track of his adventures, David publishes two blogs about expat life and travel in Norway, and has written regular columns for the Telegraph and the Norwegian American newspapers. He also contributed destination features for the magazines of British Airways, Norwegian Air, airBaltic and Finnair.
As much as he enjoys life in Norway, he 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.
