My name is Eirin and
I was born in 1967 in Narvik, a city in the north of Norway. It's
a small city - about 18.500 citizens including the surrounding area.
Narvik lies approximately
210 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle and experiences therefore the
midnight sun and winter darkness.
My mother is born
in Lofoten - the paradise of
Norway. She moved to Narvik in 1963, met my father, got
married and settled down. I have a one year older brother who lives in
Narvik and a four years younger sister who lives near Oslo. My brother
has three children, Ruben is ten, Marlene is seven and Fredrik is two.
Me - skiing in the slopes in Ankenes
- with a view to Narvik.
