Erin Explores

Oslo, Norway (July 2014)

I only had 1 full day (2 nights) in Oslo, but I made the most of it.

I went to the Folk Museum, which is an outdoor museum of actual authentic old buildings from all around Norway that were carefully reconstructed here. There are even actors in period costume going about their business (chopping wood, fetching water from the well) as if you weren’t there.

This is where I learned that Norwegians haven’t always been tall…

And had a look inside a beautiful stave church.

I also visited the Viking Ship Museum, showcasing 3 Viking ships that were buried over 1,000 years ago.

I saw the rest of the city from the land and water.

    Hi Erin – I just went to Oslo too. Even though there are no fjords, the city has so much to offer. I enjoyed the museum Fram a lot. Exploring the original ship Nansen and Amunsen sailed to Arctic waters with was amazing! 🙂 Are you living in Spain at the moment? I see you rather have posts from another countries recently.

      No, I moved back to the states a year ago. I still love Spain so much though!

        Erin – I must say that the title of your blog confused me a bit. Also, have loads to catch up with your blog. See you around.
