Farvel, Kongsberg

Kylling CurryIt’s my last full day in Norway – I’ve just finished my breakfast in Kongsberg: three slices of bread – one with the kylling curry (chicken curry) spread, and 2 with the Nugatti spread (similar to Nutella). I also had two glasses of apple juice – so now I’m ready to tackle the world. I kinda like the idea of buying unsliced crusty bread and have a couple of slices for breakfast. Although, knowing me, the idea will be novel for a couple of days until I get lazy again and just have a cup of coffee instead. Haha.

In a moment, I will pack my stuff and be ready to head off to Oslo. We plan to visit Vigelandsparken to see the world famous park, adorned with numerous statues made by Gustav Vigeland. I visited the park six years ago and I thought that it would be nice to have a look at the statues again. Other than Vigelandsparken, I intend to take the day as it comes. Perhaps a stroll to Aker Brygge (a main shopping area in Oslo) or along the Karl Johans gate (the main street in Oslo). Compared to her siblings, Copenhagen and Stockholm, Oslo is very plain indeed. The smallest of the three cities, Oslo does not have showy buildings or anything that make visitors go oooooh. Whilst Copenhagen has her cosmpolitan and buzzing lifestyle, and Stockholm has her meandering alleys and canals, Oslo simply ushers you quietly out to explore the rest of Norway: majestic nature that lies waiting outside the city centre.

As you can probably guess, I am very fond of Norway – the nature, the midnight sun, the fjords and rugged coastline, the Viking ancestry – they all seem to portray Norway as a more quiet, rugged person with a beautiful heart, if you compare the country to Denmark or Sweden.

Well, time to close this blog and pack!
