Nine year-old Eirik Skiftenes loves to be outside both day and night. Every night since June last year, Eirik has been sleeping outside in a hammock on the porch by himself. He has become somewhat of a local hero in Grimstad, because of this particular interest.
He faces some of the challenges of sleeping outside, like cold weather and mosquito bites. However, that won’t stop Eirik when he has warm winter clothing and mosquito nets!
Eirik wants to continue sleeping outside until this year at least, but the Grimstad native says that “Nothing is better than a night out in fresh air!”
