Six months ago, I tagged along on G’s biz trip to Oslo, Norway. He was sent to Oslo for orientation/training as a new employee and I decided to play tag along. Well, I thought to myself, I’ve a passport, some time off and the cash for the air ticket (after pricing tickets on Orbitz), so why not?
I spent 3 days in Oslo before departing to Stockholm for the weekend, and here’s some pictures I’d like to share. (WARNING: Picture heavy post!)
Oslo Gardermoen Airport
I took a tour of the Oslo Opera House shortly upon arrival (not without a nap first!) and returned the next evening with G to snap more pictures and to go up to the rooftop. Besides, it was snowing the day I arrived and I wasn’t quite willing to endure the cold to take pictures of the exterior!

For our first dinner, we went to Albertine Cafe & Bar and had beef stew and whale steak. The whale steak was interesting as it had a tangy kick to it!
The whale steak was wrapped in bacon!
And that concludes my first day in Oslo.. More to come in the next post tomorrow!
