OSLO 2015

10 Sep 2105 – Annual Visit

Mon: a safe Labor Day to family and friends in the US. Tkx Kari for meeting at Majorstuen, where the Holomenkollen SkiJump stands clearly and proudly in the background. Cheers for our annual meeting.



Pleasant weather and stroll along the fashionable Bogstadvei with the most colourful 7-11 and an unusual car.


Lorry dates back from 1870s is one of the older restaurants is especially known for the many artists who have visited the place and an assortment of more than a hundred beers.


Slottsparken/The Palace Park is a public park in the center of Oslo surrounding the Royal Palace. It is 22 hectares/54 acres.


Tue: stayed home with Olai who has a runny nose. Dinner at Tåsen with Ingrid&HansK. Tåsen is a neighborhood of Oslo, about four 4km/2.5mi north of the city centre. The name origins from the norse name Tásvin.


Wed: heaven is certainly a place on earth. Some quiet playtime and then a yummy cookie with hot chocolate at Starbucks with Olai before sending him off to daycare. He is such good company and I am enjoying every second of it.



What a glorious and beautiful day for a walk about town around tasteful Scandinavian designs.


A new OSLO sign made of wood by the National Theater.The fountain on Karl Johan Gt seems to be spraying higher than when I was first here in 1967.


Only in Norway can PEACE can be visited 🙂 After 4hrs walk in the fresh clean air had to take a nap before dinner. Just read from FB friends that in SIN the PSI readings are: 163 in the East and 169 in the North, sure glad that I am not there…
