Jess B., Jess M., and I flew to Oslo on Friday night and had the smoothest travel experience we could have asked for. We landed safe and sound and took a bus (possibly filled with questioning the driver every stop…) to our hostel.
This was my very first hostel stay! And boy, did we do it right. We had a private room with 3 comfy beds, an amazing shower, and it was located right in the center of Oslo. Included in our stay was the sweetest front desk woman we could ever ask for that gave us directions and recommendations better than Google ever could.
We woke up early on Saturday morning and began our Oslo adventure. We enjoyed lattes and breakfast goodies at the cutest café next door, stumbled upon the Royal Palace, and then took a northbound train for the forest. We hiked along a gorgeous lake and through root-ridden trails. It was more than beautiful. We couldn’t believe that yesterday morning we woke up in Copenhagen and how we were in the lush forest of Norway.
The park was incredible. When I look at sculptures, I forget that a human worked for hours and hours, chiseling away at something with no form and transforming it into something so realistic and beautiful.
