Nah! I am not there, but it had you thinking for a moment. I know what you are thinking, Oslo, what is there?
You would be surprised, and so was I, when I was asked to book a two week trip for a business client. It’s on the up and up for tourist destinations and is full of clean, fresh air.
To start off, it can be chilly so make sure you take some warm clothes if you plan on visiting. You will also be happy to know you can travel on a relative budget which is always good to hear. With over 50 hotels Oslo has more than its fair share to meet any budget, and it has the second tallest hotel in the whole of Northern Europe which is surprising (Radisson Blue Plaza Hotel).
With plenty of choices where to stay, you might need to know what things you have on offer to eat and drink. Well, as with any major city there is more than enough restaurants, cafes,and bars along with the obligatory street food on many corners.
One thing I can tell you about the food there is, it is fresh, especially the fish. They love to fish in these parts. That is not to say you have to live on fish. There are lots of international restaurants from Thai, Italian and any other culture you care to throw into the mix.
If you taste anything that tastes like lemon, there is a chance it might not be. Lemons are not grown in Norway, yet they have ants, so your lemon juice on your fish might be those little creepy crawlies.
If you are into modern buildings,you’ll be happy to know that Oslo is teeming with architectural innovations, and if you fancy taking some snaps of these funky places and structures, they are a far cry from the small white buildings you can find down by the harbors. The best place to check all this out is the chic downtown waterfront area; it can be a great night out.
Depending on the time of year it isobvious, there areskiing and most of which is done 30 minutes from the city in Oslo winter park. Apart from the winter sports, you would expect there is plenty more to see and do around Oslo depending on the time of year.
Oslo is home to one of Scandinavia’s largest climbing parks which are located in the summer park a quick 30 minutes from the town center. There are botanical gardens and sculpture parks; they seem to love sculpture in Norway.
You can go island hopping from one of the boats or take a splash in the Sorenga seawater pool which might be on the cool side for most. Moreover, for a summer day, you can visit the Akershus Fortress and discover their local history.
If you fancy some roller coaster action, you can make a quick trip to Tusenfryd or is that just a little too much like home?
Until next time,
