Kolsås outside Oslo, Norway
Well, I've finally got some photos that are not (all) of plants - hooray for europe!
Spent today enjoying the Norwegian summer (yes, this time I'm not being sarcastic), and visited the National Gallery and Centre for Contemporary Art. Yesterday was also quite touristy, with a maritime theme. Caught the ferry from the city to visit the Viking ship museum and the Fram museum (named after the focal point, the ship 'Fram', which has been the furthest north and furthest south in the world). The viking boats are amazing - they're beautifully shaped and built, managed to sail from Norway to Greenland and Canada through the arctic, and then also managed to stay together for over a thousand years (mostly), whhilst being buried in mud. The 'Fram' was interesting enough, but just didn't have the beauty of the viking ships, but they did have stuffed animals...
Less than a week left to discover the secrets of Oslo (like where they sell hot jewellery and passports), so will try camping again (minus any valuables) for the weekend, and see if I can find some more wildlife (I saw a moose on the way to the airport, that's it). Apparently they
have beavers and bear here as well, so it's just like Canada, but everything is just a little smaller... Ciao!
More photos later - I'm running late for dinner!
Later note - I'm going camping this weekend - thieves beware, I'm onto you now.... So I won't be back in front of a computer until Monday morning. Hopefully I'll have some more non-plant based photos to share...Ciao!
