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

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: 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. 

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. 

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g
