    Bette and I bit tired

    July 6, 2017 in Norway

    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 🇮🇸 xx

    Oslo

    June 26, 2017 in Norway

    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

    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.... To ti je krasny mesto... Vsechno novy....

    Presne tahle replika Saši Mašlana z Pelisku plati v Oslu dvojnasob. Oslo je moderni a zive mesto. Mozna diky tomu, ze je patek, slunce a 25•C byly vsechny zahradky a restaurace preplnene.

    Centrum Osla je relativne male a tak se vsechny hlavni pamatky se daji projit pesky behem par hodin. Krasny je park mezi Parlamentem a Kralovskym Palacem. U Kralovskeho Palace jsme omylem poukouseli ostrazitost hradni straze, kdyz jsme se chteli jen zeptat, jestli opravdu nemuzeme dovnitr. Bylo nam vysvetleno s vystrahou pazby bajonetu, ze opravdu ne. Ostatni turiste, kteri asi tusili, ze za vydlazdeny pulkruh se nesmi nas obdarili smichem a misty skoro az potleskem.

    Z pristavu u moderni mestske radnice odjizdeji ruzne vyletni lode na "fjord tour", diky nasim nevolnostem z jizdy na lodi jsme zvolili jen 10 minutovou linku do muzeu polarnich objevu s obri lodi uprostred.

    Nemile prekvapeni nas cekalo k obedu. Oslo je opravdu drahe. Nominalni ceny jsou zde stejne jako v CR, az na to, ze jedna norska se rovna trem ceskym korunam. Takze hlavni jidlo stoji kolem 250 korun. Sandwich 100. Nakonec jsme narazili na supermarket s luxusnim salat barem (Martin to spis pojal jako jako krevetovy bar) a grilovane kure. Salat, pecivo a pulka kurete za "pouhych" 150NOK. Piknikovali jsme v jiz zminenem parku mezi Parlamenem a Palacem.

    Adelka si v obchudku chtela koupit lahvicku dzusu (0.3L). Kdyz zjistila, ze stoji 40NOK, tak si to rychle rozmyslela.

    Za zminku jeste stoji budova Norske Opery. Moderni budova na brehu more, na kterou se da vylezt a rozhlizet se na cele mesto ze sikme strechy.

    Mirime do postele. Zitra vstavame v 4AM. Ceka nas cesta rychlovlakem na letiste a v 8AM let do Londyna. V Londyne mame 4h layover a v 12:15PM odlet smer Los Angeles. Zatim ahoj, ozveme se z Londyna!
