Tove Raappana Reibo and her family chose living in a village over living in a town when they settled in the north of Norway. She tells about how this has made their lives more compact – you meet the same people at kindergarden, at the shop and at choir practice, it is easier to get to know people.

The story is in Norwegian.

Tove Raappana Reibo og familien hennes valgte å bosette seg på bygda i steder for i by da de skulle slå seg ned i Nordnorge. Hun forteller hvordan dette påvirket livene deres – du møter de samme menneskene i barnehagen, på butikken og på korøving. Det er lettere å bli kjent med folk.

Country of origin: Norway
