One week in Oslo

I have spent one week in Oslo. My apartment still doesn’t have wifi. Our fridge isn’t 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.
