Oslo, Norway

After Stavanger, I headed to Oslo and spent a few days there, meeting up with a friend who moved to Stockholm a while back. I was in Oslo from May 21-24, 2015.

Flying into Oslo

I flew from Stavanger to Oslo on Norwegian Air. It was mostly cloudy en-route but started to clear as we descended into the Oslo area.

Oslo is a port city, so there's a lot of water in the area as we got closer.

In the Neighborhood

After getting settled in the apartment in Oso, we decided to take a walk around the neighborhood. We were a few blocks east of the Central Station. There were various restaurants, pubs, and markets within a few blocks. Also a jail which was next to a park.
