Magnify on Oct 3, 2009



On Saturday it rained quite a lot. After we’d had some really expensive breakfast (I had a bagel and a coffee for 78 NOK = 9,20 €) we first went to the Akershus fortress, but unfortunately it was closed (like the Munch museum and Holmenkollen, which we actually also wanted to visit). The girl in the tourist information there was quite nice and recommended us a walk outside the fortress, but the weather was too bad, so we left and went to the harbour, where we took a ferry to another part of the city, were some more museums are.

The first museum we visited was the Vikingskipshuset, which was very impressive. There were three old viking ships and lots of treasures and beautifully made viking stuff. But actually the light in the museum was quite dark (I would understand it if they want to save the stuff, but it was allowed to take pcitures with flash, so that might not be the reason...).

The second museum, the Frammuseet was also about a ship, but very different. With the Fram, some famous scientists explored the arctic seas hundred years ago and there were some really exciting stories about the ship. You could even go onboard (it’s not in the water anymore) and explore the ship.

After the museum and a lot of rain everyone but me (THAT’s why I like Dr Martens!) had very wet feet and it was also very cold, so we went back to the hostel, where we found out that our room was the former storage room (that explained why there was no washing basin and mirror in it). Then we had some pizza and after we had found out that the cinemas in Oslo don’t show many films in the evening, we went to a pub, where they had some kind of “Oktoberfest”. It was not at all an Oktoberfest, but they served a pitcher of beer for a lower price and had live DJs. Somehow they decorated the whole place with blow-outs and we found out that the waitress was also from Sweden (like us, hehe). Anyway, the cider was very expensive (like 7,20 € for 0,4l) and we left very early to get some more sleep.
