Oslo (in background)

It was late night when we arrived to some place near of Oslo. We really needed petrol in car, but only gas station which we had seen for a long time was closed and cards didn't work in automat. We weren't enough close to Oslo so that we could drive there and try to get petrol from somewhere else so we decided to stay rest of the night on that gas station parking place. At the morning when it opened we finally got petrol and could continue driving. It still took some time to us to get in to Oslo.

Finally when we arrived to Oslo it was almost 12 pm. It tooked long time to us to find first place where we wanted to go. We actually drived around some time before asked help from one gas station.

They helped us there, but somehow we weren't able to follow the directions and didn't find the place with them. With good luck we found bus stop where was a map and the place was really close to it so we found it. This place was Reptilparken. My friend loves snakes so I choosed this place to visit on our trip. We didn't have much time to spend there so we told my dad (who wanted to stay in RV) that we will be there about 20 minutes. And guess what: We actually were there 20 minutes! Pretty good estimate. :) There was many cute reptiles (I don't know what some of them are called so I'm just gonna call them reptiles). One reptile runned around in it's cage (no, they weren't cages, but I don't know other word which matches better), but most of them were just standing in one place (more easier to photograph :D).
I was playing with my camera trying to get good photos through glass, but most of them didn't look good. I don't have much to say about Reptilparken 'cause we were there so short time and I'm writing review about it too so I'm saving things to write on it.

Next place was more easier to find 'cause it did read on our map. That place was Norsk Folkemuseum. It is outside museum showing how Norweigians use to live. It was really interesting place though we were REALLY tired in this point of the trip (with only little sleep for 6 days and LOTS of walking it was no surprise that we got tired and our legs were painful). We didn't walk through whole museum area, but most. It was really fun to see all those houses and I noticed many beautiful details. There were some farm animals and I'm always excited to see animals.

Holmenkollen
:) Pigs were my favourites. Souvenier shop was really interesting. They were selling "old things" and of course "new things" too. "Old things" means kids toys which are not so common nowdays, but were in past, and other stuff like those. I didn't buy anything "old", I just bought keyring (I bought one from every place that we visited), pen and post card.

Last place where we wanted to visit in Oslo was Holmenkollen. I think that it is must-to-see in Oslo. We tooks lots of photos there. We didn't visit in museum there (I didn't actually know that there is museum), but we went to souvenier shop of course. :) I noticed that they had took everything out of that fact that Holmenkollen is famous tourist place. There was two (I think) souvenier shops, that museum and some else stuff (skijump simulator, etc.). When coming down from there, there is really amazing view to Oslo. After getting petrol to our RV, almost nothing happened that day. In some point of the night we stopped in one gas station and I needed to look map from internet (computer was really weird). Something else happened too, but it fits better to next blog entry so I'm saving that on it.
