I Decided That I No Longer Needed The Ski's That I Had Dragged All The Way Over Here

So with our random flights to Norway, we were all set for a savage weekend away drinking and skiing, not to mention drunk skiing!

Imagine my surprise when I found out that my ski's would be worthless in the snowless Norwegian summer, so disappointed but at least it was raining back home so it was still a win-win situation for me.

Although we arrived pretty late it was still bright out. We took ages trying to find our hostel, Lonely Planet lie, it is not a 5 minute stroll from the train station, its a 20 minute metro journey and then a 5 minute walk! By the time we had got back into town and had a few drinks, we started to wonder about the time.....it was after midnight and I was getting sun burnt sitting outside having a few drinks??!! Brilliant. Well not so brilliant about the sun burn but you know what I mean. It never got dark the whole weekend really.

One other thing we noticed about Oslo, we could not find one single off-licence or supermarket that sold alcohol! Such a disappointment...
