A short break to sub-zero beautifulness
Flying into Rygge Airport, our accommodation was only 3 stops on the bus from Oslo Central Station. Being self-catering was probably a good idea, as we didn't expect things to be maybe as expensive as they were. Three and a half days in what was a beautiful city, and I've come back with a terrible cold and feeling exhausted! However, it was truly worth it as we saw some amazing places!! Our first afternoon/evening saw us get lost on a bus and end up in a place called 'Stig' (excellent for us as we love Top Gear!).
Starting off with a trip to Bygdoy and visits to the Viking Ship Museum and the Kon Tiki Museum. We weren't able to get the ferry back across as the Fjords were frozen over! Instead we jumped on the bus and went to Ullevaal Stadium, only for that to be shut at weekends! After a wonder around we jumped back on the bus and headed to the Vigeland Sculpture Park - an amazing place with some lovely sculptures.
We started with the National Gallery to see Munch's 'Scream'. After hot chocolate and a bun in a cafe we headed onto Arkershus Fortress and the Resistance Museum (which was shut). There are amazing views from the top of here - especially when the sun sets!
Our last day and we went for a wander around the Folk Museum before heading back to the Central Station to get out train to the airport.
It was an amazing weekend - albeit a bit cold.
