oslo? by Napoleon on 11 November 2003 10:13pm
Ive asked before and thanks to those of you who posted. But im off week after next so I was just trying to see if anyone else out there had any tips concerning travelling around oslo in norway.

I've got a good tip Mr. Bonaparte. Take plenty of money with you. Oslo is a very expensive place.

yeah, ive heard this which is of a concern as ive just moved into a new house but saying that i got a good deal on bed and breakfast in a nice hotel so well have to stock up there and grab a mcdonalds or something. its only for three days and we dont drink so im hoping we shouldnt do to much damage to our credit cards.

I read something online about an exhibition in an Oslo museum of Munch's paintings, which you have to look at in the dark, using torches, in order to preserve them. I'll see if I can find it...

Ah, here we are.


Of course, you could always go and look at Munch's paintings, including the famous Scream, in the light at the Munch museum... http://www.museumsnett.no/munchmuseet/ ...but where's the fun in that?

..my son is off to Sweden on business next week and has two free days....suggestions anyone? in all my travels, i have somehow missed most of Scandinavia. Peter, guess that reindeer is on some menus, but up north from me, in Alaska, it is elk with loganberry jam! and rather tasty i might add...

Sharon you never said were in sweden but if your sons going to stockholm,The tourist board are most helpful,Icy Arts is a must that started with the ice built hotel,but the bar can be visited in stockholm,for example warm clothing supplied and one can sit comfortably on a ice stool at the ice bar drink vodka from glasses made from what else ice,the hotels are most helpful and buisness visitors are well catered for regarding sight seeing,and yes reindeer most tasty whatever flavoured jelly.But oh the price.buisness expense accounts lovely way to see scandanavia.

Re: oslo? by Napoleon on 22 November 2003 8:15pm
Certainly will, finnguy. apparently according to the weather sites its between 0 and 5 degrees with the odd chance of snow, so im looking forward to it. Ive visited the tourist info site and am planning the hot spots i want to visit.
Well at least until my money runs out.
