We had to take a bus on the first leg of our journey back to Oslo because they were repairing the rails. At Brynne we got on the train to Oslo. Another long and beautiful ride through mountains and lakes. We got into Olso about 2:45 and needed to be to the apartment by 3:30. We took our second taxi of our trip to this apartment. It was a very nice place. I got a great picture the next morning as the sun was rising. The best part of this was our host Marco told us about getting a 24 hour transportation pass. We could use it for any public transportation for 24 Hours including ferries. It cost 90 Kroner. So we picked some up for us at the 7 eleven store and started taking public transportation around Oslo.

We took a tram to the central station. We wanted to map out our route to the airport for the next day. We also purchased a train ticket to get us to the airport. Then we went to the Opera house again. It was a beautiful day. Then we decided to go find the fish restaurant on the Wharf that we weren’t able to get into on our arrival day to see if they had room. It was a far distance to walk so we decided to hop on a tram going in the direction we wanted to go. We found one and hopped on. It’s fun to experiment with public transportation when you have no time schedule and you don’t have to pay every time you get on. We went to far so we got off and got on another going the opposite direction. We got off and walked toward the Wharf.
The Oslo Fjord comes up to Oslo from the sea and there’s a beautiful wharf called the Aker-Brygge-wharf. It’s where you catch the museums ferry and take fjord trips including cruises. There are restaurants, bars and street entertainment. Here’s a link to it. http://www.visitoslo.com/en/activities-and-attractions/attractions/?TLp=282572&Aker-BrYgge-wharf So, we made a reservation at this restaurant and then went to explore. We found this Fantastic street performer named Paul. He was from Australia. He Swallowed a balloon, which made us think of Jelly. Though she doesn’t swallow balloons, just inflates them and makes cool things. He put himself through a round hoop. This made think of Steven and putting his body through a hanger. His final feet was get out of a straight jacket and chains. Very entertaining. By the time Paul was done it was time for our reservation. We had fish once again. I had wonderful Salmon and Joe had a white fish. We had a rhubarb strawberry dessert that was absolutely delicious. We got on our bus and went back to the apartment and slept our last night in Norway.
The next morning we got up and went to the airport and left. This was such a dream come true. I loved every day in Norway!
