Hello again from Oslo!
What a cold few days! Greg and I have been exploring Oslo for the past two days and how cold it has been! Yesterday was -13 celsius and we were absolutely freezing!
I had of course left my warm down jacket back in Kristiansand when I was home for Christmas because I hadn’t thought of that we would be in Oslo before coming back home. And I definitely was not prepared for it to be so cold! On top of that I had forgot to pack both gloves and a hat. The first day, before buying a new pair of gloves I nearly thought I would lose my hands it was so cold!
Apart from the biting cold it was a very nice couple of days though. Oslo is such a nice city, and when coming form London, it is refreshingly easy to move around in – being much smaller than London you can easily walk around to see everything without relying on transportation.
One if the places we went to see was Vigelandsparken. This is a park full of naked statues and is very famous in Norway. The most famous statue is situated in the middle of the park and is called ‘Monolitten’. This is a very tall staute of naked people in different positions.
Because it was so freezing we rushed through the park as the cold was painfully biting, but the upside to it being so cold was that we had the park almost to ourselves.
After Vigelandsparken, we walked around Oslo. We went to wave to the king at the Castle (slottet) we saw the parliament, the opera and the city fort. Here are some photos:
We got a hotel for the time, and it was lovely to have some time for just the two of us. Not to mention there is nothing better than a hotel breakfast in the morning.
Now we have made our way south in Norway and are at my mums house, so nice to be back home and to so much snow!
Time for bed now, will speak tomorrow.
Have a good night,
