30 hours in Oslo

I had been twice to Australia but never to my neigbour country Norway. When SAS informed me I had some frequent flyer points about to expire I got the idea to use them for a hotel night in Oslo. After all, it is just a few hours bus ride to Norways capital from Göteborg where I live. So off we went, me and my boyfriend Robert, on a chilly autumn day in October 2010. All I can say is that Oslo surprised me by its friendliness, by its modern grand opera house and by the arty, bohemian feel and great cafees. I am sure I didn´t manage to see it all in so little time but I felt I got a feeling of Oslo that appealed to me. I would love to discover more of my pretty neigbour country but that will have to wait. It is so close by that I can do it anytime 🙂

  3. I was fortunate enough to visit Oslo. Your photo essay is lovely.

  4. Jenny – that Opera House is very cool! Pretty futuristic for an old city – I like it! Thanks for showing me Oslo – I didn’t know too much about it but it would be wonderful to visit, judging by your post.

  5. I´m excited…..going again to Oslo tomorrow 🙂

  6. Jenny Trozell

    Ah, have a good trip 🙂

  7. Visst är det väl ofta så! Man är noga med att se så mycket som möjligt långt borta, men missar det som är nära… Jag har varit i Norge vid några tillfällen, men inte i Oslo dock.

  8. extremely beneficial stuff, all in all I picture this is worthy of a book mark, thanks
