Norway, day 26

Today we went back up to Hollmenkollen to see the the ski museum. You can go all the way to the top of the ski jump, too. Nice view from up there:

We ended up spending all morning and a good part of the afternoon there, and by the time we came back down and had lunch there wasn’t enough time to go to the other museum we had planned on. At least it wasn’t a really high priority on our list.

We did go see the Oslo opera house, though.

  1. How neat that you were able to go to the top of the ski jump!! That is a great view from up high, but it looks a little scary to ski down! Love that double rainbow…I think it is a nice farewell to Norway and a sign that you will return safely. Sounds like you had a nice last day and I approve of your supper (although I would have chosen milk)!!!

  2. I’m happy that you had some blue sky on your last day in Oslo…and a muffins & coffee supper sounds perfectly cosmopolitan! What a loverly lovely day…
