Oslo

sunny 22 °C
View Europe on timnz's travel map.

We broke out into the Norwegian sunshine after leaving Bremen in pouring rain. We knew that we had to catch a bus into Oslo itself from the airport, but only found out as we boarded the bus that it was a 2 hour ride... Oh well may as well have a sleep then.

Luckily our navigation radar is by now in top form and we found the hostel without any bother, and without having to pay for the bus that was suggested :) By that point we were starving and after getting to the room we dropped our bags and headed straight back out to grab something to eat. We dropped by a supermarket we'd seen on the way to the hostel, and were introduced to Norwegian prices. A bottle of orange juice was about 6NZD, throughout the rest of Europe we'd payed about 2... a loaf of bread was about the same price! Finding probably the cheapest products in the supermarket for our lunch the next day we grabbed them then headed over to Maccas for dinner.

Throughout Europe so far we have found that fast food is really cheap, about half the NZD price we are used to. However in Norway it seems to be about twice the NZD price, and seems to be the case for everything. Some things are even more expensive, think 4 times the NZD price... ie a can of Coke here costs us about 4NZD...

After a good nights sleep we got up early to be at the station for our 8am train
