15 things that happened in 1992

Do you remember what you were doing in 1992, the year EuroBonus was launched? Remember Lethal Weapon…3? Windows 3.1? Or that Norway applied for the EC membership?

Sometimes twenty-five years is a long time. It may not be significant in the lifetime of a California redwood tree, but for most of us humans, a lot of things happen in a quarter of century. We get married, celebrate birthdays, get divorced, change jobs, retire, have children, invent new things, close down shops, fall down – and get back up again.

We put together our own Scandinavian Traveler list with some of the significant events that took place in 1992:

  1. Olympic games held in Barcelona
  2. Denmark win Euro 92
  3. Norway applies for EC membership
  4. IBM ThinkPad 700C laptop created
  5. Bill Clinton elected president
  6. Microsoft releases Windows 3.1
  7. Sixth Jönssonligan movie
