I was in Oslo a few times. Firstly, I believe, two or three years ago, a completely spontaneous trip with my friend, sleeping at some couch surfer’s place, trying to explore the whole city in two and a half days. Then another one, when I have been already living in Hamar, for a karaoke night with friends, then for a job interview, for a walk through main streets… but never went to Vigeland before. Now I ask myself, why?
Recently I got a chance to visit Oslo again – this time for a job interview. However, since the tickets are so expensive, I decided to arrive a little bit earlier to visit some places. The day was cloudy and windy, but it wasn’t too cold, so I could walk around, take a bunch of photos and not freeze to death. Here’s the outcome!
It’s Wednesday, middle of the week, middle of November. Oslo is already dressed up for Christmas. The bells are hanging up through the main part of Karl Johans gate, which is the most famous street in the capital of Norway. And this is where I spend those few hours with my friends.
Exploring new city usually starts when you arrive. But when it happens after 5 pm, it can be really hard. So you began to just wander around new places, looking like child who got their candy. Every building and every person mesmerize you, and you try to capture everything in one breath. Then the night suddenly comes and you set your alarm at 7 am, so you can see everything tomorrow. It’s the only time, when the hour on the alarm doesn’t upset you, but exictes you.
