Week in Oslo!

Soo as I said in my last post, I unfortunately turned ill during my time in Oslo. Luckily though, by the end we managed to do some activities! I have a ton of photos too, haha, so bear with me! This post may end up being quite long 😛 On the Sunday my Dad, Carolyn and I went out for a walk to see the Palace, followed by a walk along Aker Brygge and a lovely Italian in one of the restaurants called Olivia by the seafront before heading home. It was pleasant and relaxing, not too busy as it was Sunday evening.

The next day we decided to go and have a look at the Opera House, a spectacular building with a modern architecture. They were promoting some of their ballet and opera shows outside the building with stunning photography from the shows, and it made me really want to go see one of them!

Later that day we went to the Kon-Tiki Museum from the Opera House by travelling on a Hop on Hop off boat ride for tourists! Have you readers seen the Kon-Tiki film about the Norwegian Thor Heyerdahl who went out to prove that the Polynesian Islands were settled by humans from the east (South America) by drifting on rafts. He proved it was possible by himself taking on this journey and drifting on a raft called Kon-Tiki (built in the same style as the original settlers would have sailed) for 101 days before the appropriate destination. If you haven’t seen the film I recommend it!

On the last day we spent the entire afternoon in Vigelandspark. That man.. Wow, what a guy with a vision! He must have worked so hard to make all those amazing statues. The theme, as I interpretated it was about emitions, family relationships, and life and death. His capture on the subject was amazing, I felt their feelings and I could related too the statues’ situation. Later in the evening we had an Indian at what I believe is probably one of Oslo’s best Indian Restaurants called the Jewel of India. The food was delicios, and the atmosphere and interior of the restaurant made it feel like I was in fact no longer in Norway, but in India itself!
