Oslo

Arrived Oslo 0930 Friday morning, stowed our luggage and had a good look around Oslo.

Everything is happening in June in Oslo, due to the longest day celebrations. Oslo is a lot more modern than I imagined - very open. It was 14 degrees when we arrived, and people were out in their summer gear, and the air conditioning was on - summer Oslo style.
Checked into our hotel which was an enviromentally friendly establishment - quite lovely, and fabulous breakfast the next morning - breakfast is a big meal in these parts - more food on offer than I would normally eat for dinner. We're not complaining....

Brrr. I wouldn't survive there! 14 degrees here today and I have thermals and heater on. Did you know about the luck-bringing ritual to do at midnight on thel longest day? Strip naked an roll around in the dew - apparently. Let us know how you go.
Yr postings are boosting my knowledge of geography no end. Thanks guys xx

Sounds like you like your hotel in Oslo. Would you mind sharing the name?
