    Oslo - Auf dem Weg zum Appartment

    July 5, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Vom Holmenkollen führt uns die letzte und bisher verkehrstechnisch schwierigste Stecke ins Appartement und ins Stadtzentrum zur Autovermietung um unser Auto abzugeben. Nachdem wir nach einigen Anläufen dann endlich das Auto los sind, haben wir beim zurück spazieren in die Unterkunft schon ein paar Schnappschüsse von Oslo machen können.Read more

    Bette and I bit tired

    July 6, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Bells are ringing again in Oslo. They chime the hour then play a tune to honour someone or other and we have lost two hours again so a bit confused. We have a gorgeous room in the hotel and the staff here are so obliging. Have to reorganise our luggage a bit before boarding the boat and we are going shoe shopping in the morning as one of my pairs of walking shoes fell apart in Iceland 🇮🇸 xxRead more

    Oslo

    June 26, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Having fun here in Oslo. Weather mainly clear but cool for Summer max20 degrees. Been to amazing huge sculpture park and Viking museum. Bette reckons I would look the part with a Viking helmet on and standing at the bow. What is she trying to say? Went to the painter Edward Munch museum and saw a huge collection of his work then on to the Home of the Nobel Peace prize. We had a hilarious time trying to buy train tickets. The streets are full of young people celebrating their Schoolies and lots of buskers. Walked a lot and feet holding up ok . Food is great but very expensive. Hotel in a great position and very comfortable. More adventures tomorrow love to all B&B cxxRead more

    Last days in Oslo

    June 28, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Have really enjoyed exploring Oslo further . The Nobel Peace prize museum was very moving. There was a very emotive exhibition on refugees that reminded me of the stories of so many of the refugees I taught. Todd and Col would have loved the Kontiki museum we went to with the actual raft as pictured here as well as another place which covered adventures to the Arctic and Antarctic in wooden ships. Today we went to the modern art gallery which had some interesting and also bizarre pieces. We were getting very tired and sat down in two huge red chairs and watched a terrible short film that made us laugh so hard we hardly were able to get out of the chairs. Bette decided to join the school children who were dressing up and having their photos taken. The attendant said the masks were just for kids but I managed to take this photo of her in the monster mask. See if the little ones recognise her!! We saw all theses little kids on outings today. Two carers pushed 6 kids about Ned's age in these two red wooden wagons . They let the kids run around on the grass for a while then lay them all down under a tree covered each one up and they all went to sleep. They were still there when we came out of the gallery. We wondered what magic spell they had performed. We then took a ferry out on the fjord. Early to bed tonight as we are off on our Iceland adventure tomorrow. XxxxxRead more

    Oslo, Euopean Green Capital 2019, great!

    September 24, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Oslo, finally Norway! Months waiting to be here...and...it is better than expected. Natalie and me feel finally the freedom of Van-life, the nature near to us and we are more relaxed after having all big formalities behind us. It feels good! The weather is good, not to cold, less tourists, empty highways...great!

    Oslo today was a great experience. We went in with the scope of discovering the European Green Capital 2019...and we found it. Starting from the Visitor Center (Tourist Info), to the streets, and some museums. We felt the city and people where committed to the cause of turning their lives into a more sustainable, cleaner and environmentally friendly life as possible.
