Literature wherever you go
Favorite thing: What a brilliant idea! Too bad I don't speak Norwegian, I would have loved to read all the quotations from those plays.
The smallboat harbour in Aker Brygge
Fondest memory: The residents in Aker Brygge and the people who can afford it have their boats in the smallboat harbour overlooking Pipervika harbour and Akerhus fortress.

- Arts and Culture
Favorite thing: Apparently, this ship berthing in Oslo port was quite a big event for locals. It is a war ship that had never ported in Oslo before. I didn't manage to catch the name of it though....

Statues and street decor
Favorite thing: It seems that wherever you go in the city, there are statues, water fetaures and unexpected clusters of memorials & monuments.
There are many conventional examples and then some not so conventional.
Walk around the harbour
Favorite thing: I love wandering around the harbour in Oslo. It is full of restaurants, bars, shops and of course boats. Ideal for a quiet afternoon stroll.
Keep your eyes open
Favorite thing: As anywhere else in the world, Oslo is the type of places where you should keep your eyes open if you want to spot the unsual or incongruous, such as this statue shot in the harbour.
Oslo 1000 Year Celebration
Favorite thing: We were lucky enough to come across the "1000 Year Celebration of Oslo" when we were there... There was a huge parade down Karl Johans Gate which we watched till the end...it was fantastic!
- Arts and Culture
Favorite thing: Oslo is a city with many sculptures in parks, streets and building besides Vingeland Park with more than 200. It makes Oslo a very nice city.
Fondest memory: If you wish see more sculptures visit my travelogues.
Favorite thing: Many fountains are in the parks and places of Oslo, all them very beautiful, but dont wait see them in winter because by the cold they stop before that season in order avoid to broke.
Garden Apartments - Mountain Greenery
Favorite thing: Apartment living is so much more pleasant when you feel that you're next to "the woods" - these units could be rather ugly in a different setting, but here they seem absolutely charming.
- Hiking and Walking
The Royal Guards
Favorite thing: Here are some of the Royal Guards at the Royal Palace... Try making them smile/talk...it just won't happen... ;)
