Do as a true norwegian and take a trip to the Swedish border and buy what you need.

Sweden is an 8 hour drive from Bergen so it's not worth it at all

Non-perishables items, yes, often. 2-3x/month.

I know some people who do most of their food shopping online. I've never tried it, and I don't suppose I will while in Switzerland, I don't really have room where at home for big shops.

Did you bear all cost of the conference on your own or was it reimbursed by your employer. What are the acceptable accommodation cost for your employer when doing a business trip?

I get full reimbursement, some of the most expensive things (plane, hotel) can be payed directly by my employer. This time my Institute payed for plane only, because I wanted to find a less expensive alternative than the hotel suggested by the conference.
As a matter of fact I think my Institute would have payed for the hotel in Offenbach (~ 250 € per night) but I didn't want it to become a precedent and something for them to have leverage over me with, so the hotel I booked was a lot less expensive (~ 250 € for 4 nights), with the only addition of 5,20 € per day for the S-Bahn. In this way I made them pay a lot less and they cannot "blackmail" me in future

I try never to exceed 100 € per night for the accomodation but sometimes it's just not possible (for instance in Norway, or in Dublin). Anyways you have to present a detailed estimate of the costs before traveling, and they can approve the budget or not. Up to now, I was never rejected a budget for conferences.

O/T: it is 'paid' not 'payed' I've seen that error often.

Meanwhile in Norway:

I've seen an identical picture on facebook today. The tyre belonged to a Romanian police car.

And today another 87 likes. However one came from "1 others" in the quoted post. I revealed who because now there's no way to know all forumers who liked a certain post when more than 5 have done so.

There are some strange temporary traffic lights in Slovenia between Maribor and Dravograd. The red and yellow lights need like 15 seconds before turning green.
