Arrival In Oslo


I’ve arrived in Oslo, Norway on Thursday, the 1st Feb 07 at around 4PM local time. The weather here was crisp, cold and snowy. The temperature was probably at around -1 C.

Upon arrival, I immediately took the fast train from the airport to Oslo Central Station. The trip took about 10 minutes but the cost of the fare was unbelievable. It costs double the price for a Heathrow Express return ticket! I really didn’t mind but I still thought it was like daylight robbery :)

I was greeted at the train station by a good friend of mine whom I have not met in more than 10 years. It wasn’t planned and I was only told that she was going to be there whilst chatting on Messenger. And yes, I was already feeling really excited even before the journey began :)

We took the cab to the hotel. It wasn’t really that far. I think it took us less than 5 minutes to get there.

We later walked around the city and had a Chinese dinner at one of the local restaurants. The scenery was really beautiful. It was almost surreal.

Here, the snow settles for weeks and you simply can’t compare it to our London snow that seems to melt in 5 minutes :) .

I’ve begun to realise that Oslo is THE MOST expensive city in the world. So, if you are planning to come to Oslo please make sure that you bring in lots of cash. Everything here seems like double the price in London.

I don’t think you need to take any public transportation as most tourist attractions in the city are just within a short walking distance away.

My friend and I spent the rest of the evening at the Hard Rock Cafe and later on to a local Oslo club.

I got back at the hotel at around 3.30AM.
