Today I woke up and couldn't believe that I've actually been to Norway. Siw from Quiltegarden and Bente from Lille Stasjon in Norway were the most wonderful hosts. From the moment I arrived at the airport I was so glad to be in Norway.
Today I want to share a little of Oslo with you:
Erik, Bente's husband, took us to Vigeland Park, a magnificent sculpture park. The park is the life work of Gustav Vigeland and is full of sculptures that show humanity from birth to death and everything inbetween. It is breathtaking.
A favourite is 'The Little Angry Boy'. Of course, anyone who has ever been around children can appreciate this sculpture!
He has been stolen a number of times, always the sign of a good art work!
We also had a visit to the Royal Palace:
Where we saw the sculpture of King Karl Johan:
And took in the birdlife:
I really love this photo but my hubby thinks it's a little odd that I travel to the other side of the world for more than 35 hours to take photos of pigeons! I think he's a regal kind of pigeon fit to wait outside the palace of King Harald and Queen Sonja.
Here's my hubby, Rohan, and Bente's hubby, Erik, with a lovely troll.
Next post will be more of Oslo. I will show you my first 'trunk talk' in Norway!
