So I leave for Bergen tomorrow. Oslo has been incredible. I have met some really cool people so far, done tons of sightseeing, got my feet wet w experiencing some of the local culture , and feel pretty good about hosteling so far. I am not going to lie, I was pretty nervous starting out. A lot to learn but feel much more comfortable and ready to keep the destinations coming! I kept hearing people tell me how awesome this trip is going to be and I am just about now realizing how cool and fun this is going to be. Here are some pics of Norway so far. I really have spent most of my time walking around the city and checking out the cool museums.  Everyone has kept telling me (prior to arriving to normay) how expensive it was.  Boy are they right.  I have been lucky to be able to lean on this museum pass to keep me busy with no danger of spending tons of money.  A beer in norway is around 13 us dollars.  I found that out the hard way the first night or so.  I didnt mind paying that much esp at the micro brewery, but when someone asks for that for a Heineken, not so much! I have been able to cook at the hostel as well to minimize costs so that has helped.  
So to all those people who complain about europe being expensive.  IT IS! (esp in norway!)  Just be smart about what you spend your money on, stop complaining, and find things to do to take your mind off complaining so much!  :)   
The weather has been great so far!  Kind of chilly, but overall pretty nice, esp with the norm around here from what I hear.  I have been enjoying a lot of hot tea since the beer is so expensive, and it helps to warm me up on the cold days!  Even though its been cold, i really have brought just enough clothing!  That is nice to know I have not over packed  :)
 I also tagged the museums and places I have gone as well. I was able to pay for a pass that got me into all of the museums I wanted to go to. I took full advantage of that :)
