WHO ARE WE?
A French family expatriated in Norway: we live in Klæbu, a village near Trondheim, in the middle of Norway. Our 2 children are born in Norway. We like the country. The landscapes are superb, the Norwegians - although sometimes difficult to access (see our pages on Norway!) - are generous and welcoming. The best would be if the concept of spring could come up there ... it would help a lot surviving the months of March and April (and May ... and June ?!).
So, why did we want to start a website? Why would it interest some people? What is special with us? Well, not that much honesty ... We are rather very ordinary. The little 'plus' about our family is that we have to think 'gluten-free' all the time ... neither by choice nor by fashion. Simply because our children have celiac disease (see pages on Gluten), what forces us to consider our daily lives a little differently than most other families. Having been confronted with this special diet for a few years now we have accumulated a lot of experience. And that's what we propose to share, very humbly.
