After work on friday I was brought to the train station in Amersfoort (NL) by my father. A friend of mine, Arjen, was already there because he works in Amersfoort. We took a train to Schiphol airport and arrived there about 1,5 hour before take off. After the regular things with checking in and stuff we had to wait like 30 minutes before we could enter the airplane. Fun thing is, while waiting Arjen recognized two people who where also waiting in line. Arjen met these two 1 year ago while they were studying in Oslo. They were also going to Oslo just for the weekend, what a coincidence. So, just a quick chat and then we were allowed to enter the airplane. The flight was alright and after like 1,5 hour we landed on Oslo - Gardermoen. We had a quick sandwich and then grabbed a train to Oslo Central. While sitting in the train Arjen decided it was better to stay in the train till National theatre, so we did. From there we walked to a friend of Arjen where we would sleep. This guy lives pretty close to Bislett Stadium which is like 1,5 kilometer walking. It took us almost an hour to get there, walking circles around the place where he lives but not being sure where it was. Then finally Arjen knew it again and we found the place. So there I met Diego, a great Colombian guy living in Oslo for already like 2 years. We had a chat for a while (mostly in English, a few words in Spanish) and then went to bed. First day is over now, next day is checking out Oslo!
