Location: Oslo, Norway

MapLanding at the Ryanair airport in Oslo was a bit of a shock. It´s more like a field in the middle of nowhere, literally, it´s nowhere near a city, just in the middle of farmland. When I asked how far it was to Oslo I was told one and a half hour´s drive. Then I knew I was in the middle of nowhere. I had thought my friend´s where going to meet me but somehow I knew they wouldn´t be there. There were so many of us wanting to get on the bus into Oslo that we had to wait an hour. So it took 2 hours to fly from Milan to Oslo, and 2 hours to get into Oslo from the airport. Methinks I won´t be flying Ryanair again in a hurry (except for flying back to Stansted).

thankfully my friends Maiken and Chris, who I met in Peru were there to meet me at the bus station and they only live around the corner in the most gorgeous loft flat which I´ve fallen in love with. Although it is in the heart of the city, it is like being in a retreat. So beautiful.

Anyway we have not stopped talking from the moment we caught up except for a short walk into Oslo to do some shopping today. tomorrow I think we are going to do some sightseeing, but needless to say the rain has followed me from Italy, or should I say sleet and snow.

It is going to be a busy week because I will also be doing some private sessions and also discussing strategic communications for their company Splint.

That is about it for now....... L
