One week in Oslo

I have spent one week in Oslo. My apartment still doesn’t have wifi. Our fridge is also not working. We went to IKEA three times in my first two days to get a bed, dresser, and other things (a fur carpet being one). Our apartment is on a massive hill, and I’m not exaggerating. I’m out of breath by the time I get to the top. But don’t get me wrong, I like it here. This city is nice- very expensive- but very nice.

Today we went and explored the castle, went to Burberry, and the Resistance Museum. There’s a Starbucks on the pier that’s nice to do homework at. The view from our bedroom window is beautiful. I could definitely get used to this place.


A few things I’ve noticed in the week I’ve been here…

  • the busses have seat belts (weird)
  • everyone drinks a mind blowing amount of pop
  • IKEA hot dogs are just as cheap as in Canada
  • NOTHING is free
  • the buildings are a mix of ancient, or very modern
  • everyone speaks English (I was shocked)
  • I can’t afford to get drunk in this country.

Next on the agenda is to get approved for my Visa (no problems at customs, thank god), find a job, and explore more.


I’m just happy to be here.
