    Judgemental eyes

    May 31, 2017 in Norway

    Our plan didn't go as we thought this morning. We did get up at 7 to put on a load of laundry. We both went into the bathroom to try to figure out the machine... because it was in Norwegian. Long story short, we ended up putting our clothes in the drying with laundry detergent 😂 we quickly realized and had to put everything into the washer except half the clothes didn't fit (small then the dryer). Kaylee scooped our all the laundry detergent as fast as possible (our host was waking up) We successfully got 2 loads of laundry done expect we put the clothes in the drying & it took a solid hour just to dry bras and underwear. We hung some clothes up in the room and threw everything in the dryer and left (in hopes that when we came back it would be dry

    We went out and visited the opera house which was made out complete marble on the outside and the inside was just as spectacular. We went to the top of the building to get a good view of the city.

    We then went into Oslo central station to try to find where we're going tomorrow and ended up at the visitors centre. We grabbed a map and quickly look at what we wanted to see. We walked the main road and saw parliament, city hall and the royal palace. We also went into the Nobel Peace Prize Centre.

    It started to down poor so we wanted to get to the mall or somewhere where we could get food. I took out my Canadian poncho and rocked it with my sunglasses. Ive never seen so many people stare because of a poncho. A girls gotta do what she's gotta do to stay dry.

    We walked by Burger King & we decided to check the prices for fun cause we had no idea what it was going go be like.... I was floored. It was almost 15$ for JUST a hamburger. We then went into the grocery store where i soon found out that i will be starving myself until we get to Germany. The prices are almost triple what we pay at home.

    We got a oven pizza and brought it back to our place to make. We ended up having dinner with our Airbnb host who is a huge fan of Leonard Cohen. We talking for a good 45 minutes until I crawled into bed. This is where I plan on staying for the rest of the night.

    We also face timed with momma who I miss so much. It was nice to talk to her ❤️❤️
