After a late arrival to the city but with ample time to explore until sunset at 10pm, we set out to map the city with our feet and get our bearings.

First we headed to the visitor center to pick up Oslo Passes, so we could join a Promenade Walking Tour of the old city. About halfway through, our guide (who was quite good) kept talking about these places we should go but wouldn’t go on the tour, so we went rogue and decided to explore the peaceful, medieval Akershus Fortress on our own.


Next we headed to walk up the Opera House and get full views of the city.

After that, we were hungry, so we walked around for a very long time trying to find Norwegian cuisine but never settling on anything. When we got all the way to the flat without finding food, we opted to just go crazy at a supermarket. Yum! The only downside is we realized we took too long and couldn’t buy any adult beverages (they stop selling at 8pm). Cheers anyways my friends!
