Norway Day 1 – Oslo

Let me just mention that the flight the night before was at 7.30pm and we arrived at the airport at 7.05pm. A NEAR DISASTER. Barely scraped through after having to beg so phew!

The train stations were really cool, from the airport you can just swipe your credit card at the barriers and it’ll charge the fare and let you through. Super easy.

The first day we had a lazy breakfast and did nothing but walk slowly around Oslo

Oo a tiger! Outside Olso Central station

Walking towards the opera house

The opera house was apparently built sometime last year
You can walk on the slanting roof all the way to the top

Strawberry waffle!

Everything in Norway is like so freaking expensive, btw!
E.g. the fare to get from the airport to the city was like £17 or something (one way)
In London you can just take the tube for less than £3!!

Blue skies like that remind me of Australia

Eew clouds

Walking towards National Theatre

The streets were pretty much dead due to the Easter holidays
I felt like Will Smith in ‘I am Legend

Photobucket
Towards Aker Brygge

Photobucket
Wooo I am so cool

Photobucket
The clouds look cool here!

I like this photo too

I had really yummy milky vanilla ice cream there by the water
I love milky things

Yesterday I bought a tub of double cream, whipped it like MAD and then ATE it!
YUM!

I’m spending the day in Southampton tomorrow
We’re gonna rent a bike and go cycling!

the sky in Oslo is strangely nice tho, it’s blue but not The Simpson’s-blue. Feels really calm there too.
