One of the nice things of traveling trans-continentally fairly often is finding a place to do a little stop over. This time around I decided to stop in Norway for a few days on my way from the States back to Italy.
Though I only stayed in Oslo, Norway was breathtaking. And I've heard it only gets better the further north you go.
If you find your way to Oslo, stay in the Grünerløkka neighborhood. It's hip and cool and has awesome street art (ie: that psychedelic peacock).
Visit their National Gallery to see Munch's Scream and Rodin's Thinker.
Go to the Viking Ship Museum to see, well.. a viking ship.
There are beautiful parks and waterfronts to stroll along.
Anyways.. Norway is definetly one of those places I'll be returning to some day.
