I se one of your pic got in photos of the week at the front page, congrats.
Yes thanks we now just need to find one from Norway of the same impact!
I do like this one! “Riding into the Snow Storm”!!
Great one, pretty much tell what weather can be up here too, allways changing, sometimes from one end of a tunnel to another... :)
If you are going to the museums on Bygdøy peninsula, there's a shuttle boat from downtown Oslo.
We noticed that the other day, We entered thinking snow was about to hit us and came out In pure sun shine!
Well a big day walking Oslo’s streets yesterday. The theatre, Royal Palace, Sculpture Park, the new waterfront area, Nobel Peace Centre and Akershus Castle before a quick bar hop home for my exciting recycled hostel food bin dinner!!
All in all a most foot adventurous day!
Oslo is a city in sunshine and swarmed by e-scooters! There are thousands of the things being ridden by young and old alike ....
I just arrived In time to see the castle ...
I hope she didn’t pay the painter a lot for this one!
A whole room was decked out in this pattern! Looked amazing ...
Klim circa 1678....
Lots of marching about and the usual silly hats
Then a gentle walk home to see the beer robbers at a trendy riverside bar ...
I was mugged by sea gulls!!
Cool street art
Oh and capped off with a splendid recycled food bin dinner in my hostel cell!
Off to see the Viking Ship Museum today!
What another big day nearly museumed out!
Weather was awful!
I am sure binge watching 5 series of Vikings helped me here!
Gobsmakingly incredible a 1,000 years old!
Shit picture but beautiful!
More of my day! Con-Tike and Flam museums!
I read Thor Heyadahl as a kid at school... and was surprisingly excited to be here!
Is this why I love Norway so much ... we share a birthday!
I have to love my English ancestry and the mastery of understatement!!
Amazing polar explorers!
Oh and BOTD!!
"Nøgne ø" meaning barren island.
There lived a remarkably grizzled man
on the uttermost, barren isle.
He never harmed, in the wide world’s span,
a soul by deceit or by guile;
His eyes, though, sometimes would blaze and fret,
most when a storm was nigh,-
and then people sensed he was troubled yet
and then there were few
that dared to get close to Terje Vigen
Wonderful! Thank you !
Is this from Ibsen‘s poem? A tragic tale of British brutality?
Yep, the poem "Terje Vigen" is about a man who rows to Denmark for food under the British blocade during the napolionic war, get captured and get broken in prison ..
Ah pulling out of Oslo right now!
@norseXL thank you and @PiaP for all your kind virtual hospitality! Come and see us in Oz. Direct flights from Oslo!!
Germany, brace for impact! A brief but nice visit I hope!
My euro boat is very fancy!
Cold and wet!
Just a little weird!
The moment of separation!
Pretty little island!
She’s a big boat!
If you get up here again ther's room and beer...
Shame we missed by such short time
Peter, I'm just re-entering society as a Certified Arctic Circle Crosser. It appears that we once again missed one another at Dawson City and the midnight madness by a very few days. I closed Bombay Peggy's the Night/day of June 23rd and paid for a bed at the Bunkhouse that I never slept in.
I'll be working my way through your latest photo diatribe in the next few weeks.
To quote the label of I.W. Harper's fine Bourbon whiskey, "It's always a pleasure!"
100% yes! And likewise for you in Australia. We could explore the Aussie beer scene!
