Location: Oslo, Norway

MapBlake and I had a very relaxing trip to Norway in August. We didn't see loads of tourist stuff but mainly relaxed, drank and ate well. We stayed in Drammen about an hour outside of Oslo with Blake's lovely mate Chris and fiancee Heidi.
On the one tourist day we managed to fit in, we went to a very cool sculpture park, Vigeland. There were naked sculptures of people everywhere in all manner of poses, enacting real life situations but very elegant and curious.
Also saw the Royal Palace and the Prince and Princess on walkabout in the city, saw the backs of their heads.
We went to a great Italian restaurant where I tried deer and reindeer. One was much nicer than the other but no-one seemed to know which was which!!
It would have been nice to get out of the cities into the Fjordlands but maybe next time.
Check out the pics link to see the sculptures.
