Norway: Oslo (8 July 2010)

8 July 2010

We arrive in Oslo early this morning. After yesterday's heat, the cool air, mist and impending rain are a little of a shock, but to the boys, it's bracing.

There are many things I'd love to explore in Oslo, but the weather is inhibiting so the wealth of museums, with their warm and cosy interiors seem inviting. Rushing back to the ship, I wonder if there's still time to explore the castle, alongside which the ship is docked so there is the great visual treat of juxtaposition, old and new when viewed from the angle. The boys head back onto the ship and I delve into the winding cobble street which lead up to the fortress.
