Was not happy at all when the bus driver pulled up outside and said "that's your hotel through that walkway" it's a bloody construction site. And the receptionist was the most unfriendly person ever. She barely told us our room number. All we got was "it's on the 5th floor"

Fortunately had just enough kroner to get from the scrapyard to the airport, smugly walked on the bus and handed over my 28 kroner fare and generously added my spare 1 kroner as a tip. "45 kroner please". "Gah?" "45 kroner please?!", "but the tourist office said 28". ...
Sunday - all shops closed so there is only one thing to do - walk!
