    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.

    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.

    7. Etappe: Oslo - Kopenhagen

    December 20, 2017 in Norway

    Langsam geht die Reise zu Ende. Gestern habe ich mir Oslo angeguckt und habe den Palast, den Dom, die Festung, das Rathaus, die Oper und die City angesehen.

    Ein Highlight für mich als Sportbegeisterter war natürlich auch die Ski Sprungschanze am Holmenkollen, ein richtiger Hexenkessel.

    Um 13 Uhr geht es dann nach Kopenhagen. Ca. 8 Stunden mit dem Zug mit kurzem Stop in Göteburg.

    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.

    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

    Oslo

    Yesterday in Norway

    Okay. I have found my people lol! Norwegian people get me. They appreciate my goofy nature. I have had the best time interacting and laughing with them. I’m doing one of those DNA tests when I get home. I’ve decided that I am definitely part Norwegian. I just have to grow a foot taller in order to fit in better here. They are tall! I also have to learn how to skate, ski and love the outdoors too. Not a biggy! As a cracked out Whitney Houston once said when she visited Israel, “I am home.”

    Backtracking a bit. I headed out onto the top deck of the ship at about 6:30 am in order to experience and catch images of sailing through the Oslo Fjord. Well, it was very misty, foggy and cold..... my kind of weather!
    I took a photo of the sun struggling to rise above grey clouds and then I headed downstairs to breakfast. It was basically me and a bunch of tour groups from Asia. They were very nice. I then beaded back out on deck for another hour, just taking in the scenery and trying not to blow over. It was quite breezy and cool. As we got closer to Oslo, there were cute groupings of houses in the hills to take pictures of.

    We disembarked at 9:45 am and took the bus to meet up with our local giant of a guide named Stian. We met at the Oslo Opera House, right on the harbour and it is built to look like a giant iceberg. It is clad in white marble and you are encouraged to take the ramps and stairs in order to climb up to the roof. There are no health and safety considerations. Just a sign that basically says that if you slip, trip or fall and injure yourself it’s your own fault. Norway gets 40% more rain than Sweden and Copenhagen. It snows a lot in the winter. Imagine slip sliding away on that marble.

    One of our next stops was Oslo City Hall, where the Nobel Peace Prize is handed out each year. The Nobel Prizes for literature, math, science etc are handed out in Stockholm, the big one is handed out in Oslo. Why? At the time that Nobel instituted these prized Norway and Sweden were in a political union. Sweden, especially Stockholm had lawyers examine Nobel’s papers for any loopholes to no avail. The town hall is significant because it was built using only Norwegian building materials, it was built only 5 years after the devastation of WWII and a controversy involving Norway’s most famous artist: Edvard Munch. He had planned to paint the inner walls of the great hall. The city fathers surprised him by announcing that their would be a contest as to who would paint the walls. Everyone had to submit plans. Munch was insulted! He was better than everyone else! He never submitted any plans. He also said that none of his paintings would ever hang in the city hall. He must
