Ticks are a problem in Norway it seems and I don’t mean those caused by Tourette Syndrome. I mean those nasty little critters that bite you and pass nasty diseases on to you like Encephalitis and Lyme borreliosis, neither of which you want to catch.
It is recommended that you use insect repellents containing 25-50% DEET, which are apparently widely available in stores in Norway. If you do have a tick, you can leave it in the skin or remove it in a twisting motion with vegetable oil – but either way, visit a doctor or medical centre in as quickly as possible.
I am now thinking of buying one of these bio suits to wear during the trip!
