Learn about the life of a modern diplomat as Artur Wilczynski joins David for the latest episode of the Life in Norway Show.
I’m pleased to welcome my first Canadian guest to the Life in Norway Show, but not just any Canadian. Artur Wilczynski moved to Norway in 2014 to take up the role of Canadian Ambassador to Norway.
Since taking up the post, the Ambassador has travelled Norway extensively meeting Canadians living in Norway and talking to Norwegians about the country’s relationship with Canada.
I’m honoured that Artur took time out of what you’ll hear is a very busy schedule to give an honest interview about what life is like as a diplomat in the modern age. I hope you enjoy this show as much as I did making it! If you do, please consider supporting the show on Patreon from just $2 per month.
