Oslo itself ranks below Copenhagen so far on the three Scandinavian capital's we've visited. You would probably rank it #1 if you like Museum's and if you do this is one of the rare occasions where an 'Oslo Card' would be worthwhile, since there is at least 50. We did all of the main sights from the outside in just under a day and were again blessed with 20+ heat and last night we had our first rainstorm of the trip - not bad for 5 weeks in Scandinavia!
The sculpture park was excellent and we're not into sculptures, the fact that all the works were competed by one artists gives a compelling sense of unity and everything flows together - defiantly one not to miss. The american influence continues with queues at every TGI Friday's yet many local eateries remained empty.
A quick look at some of the restaurant prices confirmed we'll not be eating out and a supermarket we went into wanted £3.50 for a 33cl bottle of Carlsberg so we'll not be drinking either! If and when we need essentials we'll be looking for a 'Rema 1000' tipped to be the cheapest option here, since Netto is positioned much more mainstream like Tesco or Sainsburys.
Overall? Spend a day in Oslo, maybe two if you like Museums
Currently parked overlooking the city on Bygdøy watching some impressive clouds, our next move will be up to the Holmenkollen Ski Jump for a view looking down on the city. The weather looks to brighten up - so we'll leave you with some shots of the moody skies!
