Oslo, Norway Day 2

Day two in Oslo started with a walk out to Vigelandsparken - a sculpture park with over 200 sculptures from Gustav Vigeland (hence the name). Lots of photos coming up

It was a beautiful day out

Fun pictures surrounding the fountain

The monolith in the center of the park

It was a fairly large park so we sat and enjoyed the sun for a bit. While we were sitting there we kept hearing these birds that sounded to me like metal toys or something. We were sitting there a while when Raymond realized they sound like the smoke monster from Lost! Or one of the sounds it makes. You can compare with the video here. It really did sound like that and was odd.

The rest of the afternoon we wandered and ate treats. I know these photos are very glare-y, but this was the window display from a store near where we stayed. 

Very odd

Food cart by the water

Ice cream and sweet potato fries - lunch of champions!

Walking around Tjuvholmen - a fancy neighborhood on the water

Lots of interesting art and architecture in the neighborhood

Nobel Peace Center

We went to Lalibella Ethiopian for dinner. Yum! I love Ethiopian food! There was an Ethiopian church next door and something had just finished there and everyone was coming over here to eat so I figured this was going to be delicious. And it was. We got the vegan plate with red and green lentils, spinach, yellow peas, cabbage, and carrots. Delicious!

After dinner, we decided to walk over to the opera house to watch the sunset and we came across this festival which now that I think about it was probably for Norwegian National Day

Crazy brick building

Perfect timing

The wall really reflected the sun

And that was it for Oslo.

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Ferry home - Tórshavn

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

Krabi Town, Thailand - Day 2

Our second day in Krabi town was just a half day. We had until 2pm to hang out and explore before we headed off to Phuket. We got up early and went in search of breakfast hopeful that some of the places that were closed the night prior would be open - and luckily they were! Well a lot were still closed, but the best looking place was open so it was perfect. Raymond's plate of food   And mine - only $1.25! Such a steal and super delicious. We both had rice noodles and yakisoba and ham log, and Raymond got some greens and I tried a curry looking thing with lots of weird vegetables I had never had before. It was pretty tasty, but it was a fish curry with mock fish in it and well I have never been a seafood fan so probably not my best choice. I just went by what things looked like since I don't read Thai.  After lunch we went to explore Wat Kaew Korawaram up on the hill.  There was this abandoned park along the stairway up to the temple with wild animal statues
