Travel Nostalgia – Oslo Part II

On the second day in Oslo, I took the bus to visit a few museums. Here’s a scenic snowy view from my walk to the bus stop…

Next, I headed back into the city center of Oslo after and went to the Nobel Peace Center.

After G got off work/training that day, we went for a walking tour. Our departing point was at the City Hall, which was merely a stone’s throw from the hotel we were staying in.

Dinner was next, as I was starving at that point, so we decided to go get some pizza. Yes, pizza. G loves pizza and it is a tradition of his to try pizzas in every country that he visits. So, off to Peppe Pizza we went.

For desserts, we went to Theatercafeen.
