I arrived a day ahead of my meetings in Oslo so that I could have some decent rest before heading to the office on Monday morning. This was my second business trip to Oslo, the capital city of Norway. Everything seemed somewhat familiar. I was staying at the same hotel and taking the same train service to work.
Arrival at Oslo Gardermoen Airport at 7.30am on Sunday, R was expecting me at the Arrivals. He had been working out of Oslo office for the past two years. We were great buddies in the Singapore office together with J and it was nice to meet him again since our CNY lunch in Singapore in February 2018.
Temperatures in Oslo today was in a low -12 degrees even though we were assured of clear blue skies and lots of sunshine (cold sun). A perfect day to be in the outdoors and sightseeing.
Growing up listening to the music of The Carpenters, he decided to name this blog Budokan in remembrance of their Live at Budokan Tour in Tokyo in May 1974. He finally made a trip to the Nippon Budokan in September 2017, 43 years after the Carpenters held their 18 sold-out concerts in Japan!
Hailing from the tropics, Budokan is fortunate to reside in Singapore where jetsetting around have become very affordable. His greatest passion lies in cultivating his lifetime career of travelling, blogging and tour guiding.
