They are all in their twenties and share a house and a car, work, everyday life and parties!
Klas-Andre Elisenberg resigned from a secure job in the south to live in Gjesvær. So have Filip from Asker, Sindre from Sandefjord and Betina from Brumunddal.
- We are excited to see what the year brings now. Now it's the cod fishing in the fishing boat that counts, soon the king crab catch, and eventually we hope that the tourists and anglers flock to us, says Elisenberg, and adds:
- Fortunately, there is midnight sun in the summer and many bright hours to work.
The friends from Innlandet follow everyday life in Finnmark on social media. There are already many records of scooter riding, cod fishing, northern lights, storms, yoik and radio bingo on Mondays.
It is a big leap in both everyday life and culture, and sometimes the longing for home also emerges.
- And if I want a regular job and everyday life again, I can always move "home," chuckles Elisenberg.
Because it may not be possible to turn a "Southener" into a "Northerner" overnight - even if he changes both address and fishing from inland to sea:
- And I hope that I also get a vacation home to meet family and friends - and to fish a little on Lake Mjøsa.
