Touchdown in Oslo! We made our way out of the airport to find mum, dad and vanny waiting to greet us. We hopped on board and began our journey south and west to the coastal region. We took a very scenic road, also rather wiggly, and turned off for Kragero.
After winding along for sometime through beautiful scenery next to tons of lakes and fjords, we turned into the campsite. It is ...

We saw a couple of old Viking ships and and a few old merchant boats, and managed to be ready to catch the train in time..... Except... There was a breakdown of some kind so we were bundled into coaches and driven 30 or 40 Kms before being dropped at another station for the trip to Oslo's Gardemoen airport, and then to our hotel for an overnighter before staggering out to catch the 06.30 ...
