My second trip in 2017, was to Norway. I had the amazing chance to spend one week in this amazing place. I flight from Bucharest to Oslo, the flight took about two and half hours.
When I arrived in Oslo, the very first thing I noticed was the smell of pine trees. Since it was end of February, I was expecting to be much colder. It wasn’t that bad but my suggestion is to try to visit Norway during warmer months.
All the people I met in Norway were very helpful and friendly. So no surprise Norway is one of the happiest countries.
I got a couple of hours in Oslo, and here is what I saw:
Then I continued my trip by train from Oslo to Lillehammer, which is small city situated northern than the capital. Lillehammer is located near lake Mjøsa, all surrounded by mountains. The city centre is full of shops, warm coffee shops and beautiful wooden houses.
Close to Lillehammer is the famous Lysgårdsbakken Ski Jumping Arena. Norway is of course the perfect place for skiing and other winter sports.
Norway is so beautiful – white snow and threes peeking out, pretty houses with huge windows and tiny paths to the street. Norway is coziness – a fireplace, warm blankets and some cappuccino. Norway is calmness – piece and quiet.
And the only thing I was sorry about was the fact I haven’t got the chance to see the breathtaking Northern lights even after a couple go tries – freezing and impatiently waiting far from the city lights… but of course it is a good reason to go back again!
P.S: Have you been in Norway?
