Oslo, Norway was so beautiful and picturesque. I recommend going there at least once in your life time. Oslo is the most expensive city I have ever visited, more than Paris and London. They still use the Norwegian Kroner instead of Euro, it was too depressing to keep converting. The people were very friendly and everybody speaks English. The food was very good, but some what disappointing that American chains have made it to Norway, like TGI Fridays and Hard Rock Cafe and of course Mc Donald's and Burger King. Though I was bummed one chain restaurant was not there, "Starbucks". I have to say I was dying for a good coffee or latte. We did an all day tour and boat tour, it was very good and easy on the feet. 6 Museum's, The Vigeland Sculptor Park and many sites from the boat and bus. It was a partly rainy day but other than that the weather was amazing, even came home with some color on my face. On the other days we visited the Art museum and saw the painting "The Scream" and many others. We went to the Palace and saw the changing of guards, no royalty in the house. Saw the largest Fresco at the Oslo City Hall and did some shopping. Had 24 hour daylight, sunshine, laughter and great quality family time. Much needed Daddy/Hubby time and a great Father's Day weekend.
