    Last few days in civilization

    June 6, 2016 in Norway

    Before my adventure begins, I'm spending 2 days in Oslo, as I prep a few last minute things and am pleasantly surprised how beautiful the city is! Besides running all my errands e.g. a long and very helpful visit at the Norwegian hiking club and packing & sending all my resupplies, I took a lovely boat ride along the Oslo fjord.Read more

    Oslo + Vestby

    September 4, 2017 in Norway

    Mir hei üs ufgmacht uf Oslo. Z' Oslo aacho heimr ä Camping gsuecht u si fündig wordä. S' bitzi Ärger heimr gha, da sie üs nid im Alj hei lah schlafä u mir überrissä viu zauht hei. So geits mängisch... Nachem Zäut ufbouä heimr afah wöschä u Znacht machä. Nach langem Diskutiere heimr üs geiniget, dasmr rebelliere u trotzdäm im Alj schlafä. #wägächautuso
    Am nächschtä Tag simr dr ganz Tag uf Oslo.
    Mir si sehr gspannt gsi, wüumr ungerwegs vo paarnä ghört hei, dass sech die Stadt nid lohnt ussert mä wott aktiv it Museeä.
    Aber – Oslo het üs umghouä! Absoluti Zouberstadt! Dr Dave isch vor 2 Jahr z' Oslo gsi, abr o är het so viu Nöis gseh. Die Stadt isch mega schnäu am wachsä u so hets s' paar Boutä meh aus denzumau.
    Mir hei üs puduwou gfüuht. Die Stadt het ä offenä, kreativä u stiusicherä Charakter, wo üs bezouberet het.
    Mir si z' Rathuus (leider nur vo uss, wüusi dinn ä Feetä hei gha), d' Operä, dr königlech Palast, d' Burg, dr nöi Stadtteil am Hafä u dr Vigelandpark gah luege.
    Im nöiä Stadtteil simr ganz usem Hüsli gsi, so kuuli Hüser wo aui so ungerschidlech bboue si, mit verschidenä Farbä u Details, rund u eggig. U glich isch z' Ganzä äs mega stimmigs Gsamtbiud.
    Dr Vigelandpark isch sehr interessant, mit au denä bsungrigä Skulpturä vo Mönschä i verschidenä Gmüetszuestäng u Läbeslagä. Zudem ischer sehr pflegt mit schön arrangiertä Bluemebeet. Aues i auem ä Park wosech sehr lohnt u zum Verwilä iiladt!
    Bir Burg u bim Königspalast heimr ar Gardä zuegluegt, wie die iri Formationä zeigä u desumä marschierä.
    Aues i auem isch Oslo absolut empfählenswärt, durch und durch äs Schmucktruckli!
    Am Aabä simr gah dr Alj holä u när richtig Vestby gfahrä fr dert ufeme Camping gah z' schlafä.
    Hüt simr nachem Überbrüggä (d' Nacht isch ume chaut gsi) zum Outlet vo Vestby gfahre u si dert dr ganz Tag dür d' Lädä gschlenderet. Jedä het paar Sachä gfungä u so fahremer itz zfridä u glücklech Richtig Stockholm.

    A stroll in Oslo downtown

    September 3 in Norway

    I don’t understand Oslo. Is it a town? Metropolis? Does it have a modern spirt or is there a strong tradition?

    Monarchy, social state, freedom of sexual orientation, formal manners, Renzo Piano parks and buildings, royal palace and ancient theatres, nature, vikings lore, stave churches..

    I am pleasingly intrigued by this cognitive dissonance and wander around like a truffle-dog.Read more

    National Gallery

    September 5 in Norway

    Today I am wearing my guilty pleasure: an animal print shirt got here. I promised myself I would only buy neutral colours in the second half of 2018- so I could wear all my fancy accessories, but I have a date with Munch.

    The museum is one floor only; they are building a new museum for 2020 with 8 floors. Half of the floor is negligible renaissance stuff, cannot even understand the point.
    I also end up finding a self portrait of Van Gogh sitting there all alone: what’s it doing there? 🤷🏽‍♀️

    Oslo, Norway

    May 17, 2016 in Norway

    Day 14:

    Syttende Mai, Norwegian Constitution Day, Nasjonaldagen! However you choose to say it, Norwegians go hard. We were woken up by a marching band making their way into the courtyard to put up the flag and play. After a breakfast of champions, we made our way to town down streets lined with flags. The main event for the day is a children's parade they have been doing since 1870. This year, over 60,000 were in the parade, representing different schools in the area! After standing in a crowd for a while, it was time to explore.

    We made our way to the opera house, which is pretty incredible. The roof is at an angle to the ground so people can walk all the way up to the top and get an amazing view of the harbor and the city. We relaxed with the view, then made our way to Sukkerbiten (the sugar cube) for a concert celebrating Norway and her diversity. After a few artists and some American guy with a weird little guitar, we headed back into the mayhem of town.

    Tired, sunburned, and in jeans, we thought a brewery would be an appropriate place to have dinner. We walked in to realize that it was, in fact, a fancy Italian restaurant in a building previously occupied by a big brewery... we rolled with it. We had cured meats worthy of a letter home and raviolis made with a combination of Norwegian and Italian words we didn't understand.

    It was a good day.

    "Der Schrei" in der Nationalgalerie, das Rathaus, die Holmenkollen Skisprungschanze mit Blick auf Oslo, der Königspalast, der Vigelandpark mit dem kleinen "Sinnataggen" und viel mehr...

    Tipp: mit Bahn oder Leihrad ist man hier gut unterwegs

    Oslo - city wandering

    September 9, 2015 in Norway

    Oslo (and surrounding country) is beautiful!

    Stefan is very kindly letting me stay at his apartment, and spending time to show me around parts of the city. Thanks so much!

    Today I walked around the city myself, and found lots of greenery, fountains, and pretty buildings. The town hall (#4) is a bit Orwellian (compounded somehow by bells chiming "always look on the bright side of life" when I walked past) but it is saved by the neat wood carvings of Norse mythology around the front (#5). Turns out Odin is fairly accurately represented by Marvel movies but Tor (Thor, #6) is missing his classic goat-drawn chariot (among other things).Read more
