... So I spent the rest of the night finding bike stores and organizing by opening time, and in the morning eent shopping instead of jumping on the train. Four hours and four hundred kroner later I became the proud posessor of a second quality lowrider pannier rack, apparently the only one in Oslo. We decided to stay the day and see a bit of city insted of jumping a late train to Kongsberg. Why rush now?So far, so ...

A day of traveling debacles - London to Oslo

... not the main airport in Oslo. I should have known this from a previous experience in Frankfurt years ago with Sam, but anyway, I thought it would be easy enough to change the pickup point for the car, so it shouldn't be a problem. We called the car rental company while we were in Gosport, only to find out that it was going to cost an extra $150 to change the booking, as I'd booked it ages ago and had gotten a good price.

Oslo at 9.30pm, and another new budget hotel...everything electronic...cup of tea, help yourself and pay for by card only...
Saturday is a pretty good day to explore this vibrant city. There seems to be a music festival on, as we hear jazz in town, rock by the Opera House... First of all we decide on the city sightseeing ...

First day in Oslo

A travel blog entry by pyres

... too tired to walk and took a tram back to the hotel. However when we were right around the corner, Julia spotted Oslo's stunning Opera House, so we had to go and check it out. It is definitely a unique building, a giant white slope coming out of the water that you can effortlessly climb all the way to the top. The view was really cool too. And it was about 5-minute walk from the hotel, so we got back really fast.
