Hallo, Oslo!

Oslo – Norway’s capital since 1814, is also its largest city and is regarded a cosmopolitan hub. Without any expectation in mind, I visited this year’s European Green Capital with a “surprise me” attitude.

The picturesque Oslo Opera House

According to the city’s official website, Oslo is one of Europe’s fastest growing cities this decade. It is a diverse centre with a richness of top-notch architecture, museums, restaurants and shopping.

The Viking Museum, one of the many museums within the city.
Some interesting sculpture one gets to see while walking around the city.

My trip to Norway completed my desire to set foot on all 5 Scandinavian countries. I got to visit Finland, Sweden, Iceland, and Denmark wayback 2017.

Anyway, here are some of the landmarks that captivated my heart during a brief visit in Oslo, Norway.

Beautiful Frogner Park

Don’t be wasted soul, be ‘juan’derlust! Take it easy.

Be a Travelspiration

So I just coined a new word for my self called “travelspiration”. I tried to google it up afterwards, and i’m pretty surprised some people use it too. Obvious as it is, “travelspiration” is a portmanteau of the words travel and inspiration.

Traveling has to be one of the most satisfying experiences a person can do in his/her lifetime. Many times, I have claimed that traveling awakens my soul, arouses my senses, and colors my world in a new hue. It is a way of living, it is my way of living…

So here are some thoughts that have personally inspired/ motivated me during my travels. I have made use some of my favorite travel photographs.
