As part of our holiday this year, we re-visited Norway, this time the beautiful capital, Oslo!
We spent the morning meandering through the city full of beautiful parks, bustling cafes and trendy shops, with our hands full of pastries and souvenirs before visiting the breath taking Opera house, perched on the edge of the fjord.
I'm not sure that i've ever seen such an interesting building, both inside and out as the Opera house. The building is largely covered in Italian white marble, which, along with it's shape makes it look like an iceberg rising above the fjord. I could have stared at it for hours.
After a gorgeous lunch at Brazzeria we decided to get on a hop-on/off tour to cram a bit more of the local history into our visit. BIG MISTAKE!
As well as getting stuck in traffic, which meant we had to abort the mission, hop off at the next stop and peg it from the top of Oslo, to the bottom of Oslo at neck-braking speed, we also got a little lost along the way, trusting google maps with our safe return. We did make it to our ship before she set sail, but only just! I don't think I ever needed that hot-tub / cocktail combi as much as I did that evening!
We still had an amazing time though - Norway seems to make sure that always happens for us. I heart you Norway, but then you knew that already...
