Hi Everyone,

This weekend was a solo trip to Oslo - home of rain, misery, interesting sculptures, and whale steaks.

I got off the plane on Friday night. A heads up to travellers: the airport is a solid 1 hour drive from the city center. When picking a hotel, make sure you have a plan to get there (preferably by the airport express train).

Saturday, I stumbled into a Medieval Festival at Castle Akershus in the middle of town. The museums in the area and the opera house took up most of my day. Whale Steak for supper - It was pretty good with fried onions.

Sunday was Vigeland Park - home of the some of the weirdest but best statues you'll ever see. That was followed up with some museums and a ferry ride before heading home.

Cheers,
Joel
