Oslo, Norway: Frogner Park

Now this, was an unexpected trip. A year ago, I never thought about going to Norway nor did I know anyone from there. 
Yet, this fall I met my friend Karen who moved there with her husband. Since I had some free time in May, I decided to take advantage of the opportunity and visit her in Oslo.
For me, Oslo was an easy city to move around in and within two days, places became familiar to me. 

One of the first places we visited was Frogner Park. This park is particularly famous for its sculptures which were done by the well known Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland. Below, you can see a collection of my favorite shots of this park.

This here is the monolith, one of the main attractions of the park.

One of my favorite shots.

This here is one of the most well known statues in the park.

As I come to a close, I always feel a need to end my posts with a question (must be the teacher in me ;) ...

Does anyone know what is being squeezed out of this tube onto the toast? Let's see if you can figure it out...


  1. Wow, this park looks like so much fun. If I ever make it over to Norway I'll have to give it a look!

  2. Gorgeous pictures! I have always wanted to visit Norway!

  3. I have a friend from Norway and I've always wanted to go. Your pictures look beautiful!! As for the funny looking paste, is it tomato or paprika based?

  4. @ Christianna: I hope you do get to go!

    @ Tracy-Girl @ Then I Got To Thinking: It is a special place :)

    @ Ashley: Make sure go and visit your friend... It is very different to Spain. It's not tomato or paprika...

  5. Unas fotos preciosas, me encanta el blog.
    No tengo ni idea de cual puede ser el contenido del tubo. Me dejas con la intriga.
    Un besazo.
