my sister is currently studying abroad in spain. getting her master’s and being all scholarly and stuff. so for her spring break, she and i decided we should do a sister trip somewhere ANYWHERE.
our first thought was morocco since it’s so close to spain. but oddly hard to get to we found out…so we decided to find a cheaper place to travel to and we came up with…NORWAY.
so last week, i traveled to oslo (through berlin) and met my sister for a week-long relaxing vacation in gorgeous oslo, norway. above are pics from our first two days there. i will be posting these in intervals because tumblr insists you can only put up 10 photos at a time. sad face.
our first day in norway we started the day with a meal at nighthawk diner. which was american. this is when i found out that norwegian food is basically american food. everywhere serves burgers and pizza and more pizza and more burgers. no complaints here! so we got milkshakes and then walked around oslo to the royal palace, aker bryge, and akershus fortress before going to dinner at an italian bistro by the water and sat outside sipping prosecco before going to bed.
day two was more exploring, but this time by boat. we took a ferry to the peninsula that houses all the museums and went to the viking ship museum first (super fascinating stuff) and then the fram museum which houses an actual 3-story humongous vessel that you can walk around which was pretty cool.
that night we went to a nice french meal at trancher entrocote and got steaks with all the sauces you could want to try and lots of fun sides like pomme frites and potato au gratin. it was delish.
on day three we headed to lillehammer. so more to come on that adventure!
