On the Thursday we headed towards Oslo by train. The train ride was pretty, and it was still a great novelty to see snow on the tops of the mountains! For me the ride wasn’t great though as I slowly throughout the journey became more and more sick. By the last couple of hours I was freakishly cold and felt horrid. The next day I still wasn’t feeling well, so I had a day in the apartment whilst Jodie and David ventured by themselves in the city and saw Aker Brygge, the Palace, Akershus festning and the parliament. By the next day I was feeling better and we decided to take advantage of the stunning weather and go grilling in Vigelandsparken. It was so relaxing, and the chicken and hot dogs we made were delicious. The day went by so fast, we just watched the world go by. The park was buzzing with people also grilling, playing games and enjoying the sun. By the end of the day the sky started to cloud over and we popped by the famous statues before heading home.
The next day we decided to have a propper cultural and historical day, and we visted the vikingship museum to see the Oseberg ship. Afterwards we headed to the neighbouring museum to look at lots of old pretty houses at the Norwegian Folk museum. For dinner we went to Egon and I had a delicious fajitas with a milkshake. Mmmmmm ❤

On our final day we opted for another cultural day and went for a trip to the National Gallery. Jodie is the more artsier one among us and definitely enjoyed a bit of art. I myself can appreciate the odd gallery here and there, as I have been forced on quite the number of them growing up. We got to see some real treasures, including a number of Dahl, Kittelsen, Tidemand such as the “Brudeferden i Hardanger” and of course Munch and “The Scream”. There were other treats like Picasso and Manet. Later we went and saw Jurassic World in the cinemas! A great film, although so scary at times! I was clenching onto Jodie for large parts of the film! Later we went for a delicious tapas at Delicatessen on Majorstuen. The final supper was so good, but also so sad! The next day I waved them goodbye and tried hard to ignore the fact that I won’t be seeing these two lovely souls for another year! The next day I took the train back again to Bergen and enjoyed stunning views as the weather was so perfect!
