Oslo...

Oslo, det hovedsted af Norge, er en flot by! Dog er jeg sikker på at vores list af ting at gøre i Oslo var lidt forskellig fra andre besøgender......

Oslo, the capital of Norway, is a great city! However I am certain that our list of things to do and see in Oslo was a little different from other visitors......

1. IKEA
2. Holmenkollen
3. Frokost hos TGI Fridays (Ja, du læste rigtigt!!) / Lunch at TGI Fridays (yes, you read correctly!)
4. Vigeland Park
5. Tregaardens Julehus

Holmenkollen er lukket nu fordi de bygger en ny skibane til 2011 Nordic mesterskab men Mads fik chancen at forestille hans selv på banen i forbedelse til hans første skiferie i december!

Holmenkollen is closed right now because they are building a new ski jump for the 2011 Nordic Championship, but Mads got the chance to imagine himself on the new track in preparation for his first ski holiday in December!


Frokost hos TGI Fridays var OK (men SÅ DYR)....dog Mads og Jess var MEGET LYKKELIG om "the FREE REFILLS"!!! Vi har ikke "refills" i Danmark så dette var gode nyheder!

Lunch at TGI Fridays was OK (but SO expensive!)...however Jess and Mads were VERY HAPPY about the FREE REFILLS!! We do not have free refills in Denmark so this was very good news!


Vigeland Park er så flot med mere end 200 skulptur! Vigeland skabede hans skulptur at repræsentere "typiske human aktiviteter" men selvfølgelig, bestemmede vi at lave vores egen "typiske akitiviter" hos Vigeland!

Vigeland Park is so beautiful with its more than 200 sculptures! Vigeland created his sculptures to represent "typical human activities", but of course, we decided that we would create our own "typical activities" in the park!





Jul i juli? JA! Jul i hele år hos Tregaardens Julehus! Jeg elsker butikker ligesom dette! Nu har vi julepynt fra Norge for vores juletræ.

Christmas in July? YES! Christmas comes all year long at Tregaardens Julehus! I love shops like this! Now we have Christmas ornaments from Norway for our Christmas tree!


Jeg var ikke overrasket at lære at Oslo har en befolkning næsten så meget som København...1.4 million! Men jeg var MEGET overrasket at lære at Norges befolkning er faktisk mindre end Danmarks...kun 4.8 million selv om Norge er 9x største end Danmark!

I was not surprised to learn that Oslo has a population almost as big as Copenhagen....1.4 million. But I was VERY surprised to learn that Norway´s total population is actually less than Denmark´s....only 4.8 million although Norway is 9x bigger than Denmark!

Vi havde ikke nok tid i Oslo og planlægger at besøge igen og måske næste gang vil vi se mere ting fra Oslos "typisk besøgende list" men for nu, har vi vores Vigeland billeder at minde os hvor sjov Oslo er!

We did not have enough time in Oslo and plan to visit it again and maybe next time we will get to see more of Oslo´s "typical visitor´s list", but for now, we still have our Vigeland pics to remind us how fun Oslo is!

What fun! Don't forget to visit the new opera house in Oslo... I've only seen pictures but it looks fabulous!

Norway is very expensive - even compared to Sweden...

Holmenkollen was one of my fave things in Oslo. We "hiked" up the mountain on a really cold October morning and were in awe looking at how HUGE the ski jump was.

I really enjoyed Vigeland Park as well. Your pictures are hilarious from your time in there.
