June 11/12 - Oslo, Norway

We leave the Arctic Wilderness and arrive in Oslo. The activity of a big city brings us back to reality. 

Oslo is absolutely gorgeous. Many turn of the century buildings in pristine condition.

We are at the Grand Hotel built in 1917 in the middle of town. Our dinner on the first night is at Sawan, I highly recommend it. Thai/Japanese, quite interesting and a delicious combination. Great wine list.
