Oslo

This was another quick visit to Oslo. I was here last late last year, but only staying at the airport for a couple of days, so sadly I never made it to the city. This time I was staying in the city centre. The last time I was in Oslo itself was over 7 years ago……a LOT has changed since then. The best weather was on my first day, where I had a bit of time to walk around near the opera house and barcode project. All of this was new to me, and there’s still a lot of construction going on even now.

It took a bit of time to get used to walking on the icy streets, and feeling like I was walking like a penguin the whole time, but it was nice to re-visit places I remembered and explore new areas.

Although I was only there for a few days, here's a few recommendations...

Brus Bar Olso - A great little bar, with a wide variety of Norwegian beers, and from further afield too. 

Dognvill Burger - This has to be one of the best burger joints in Oslo. It's in a nice location too along the harbour. Definitely try the sweet potato fries!

Oculus Bar - Another great little bar, specialising in Cervisiam beer. These 'cuckoo' brwers from Oslo rent other brewery space and come up with their own beer, all of which I tasted, was amazing!

Journal - January

This year I'll try to put a post together with all those images that don't really fit anywhere else. As I'll be taking my X-T2 everywhere with me for my 365 project, I'll be sure to have many other images from my travels here and there. 

January was a very quiet month for me. I was meant to travel to Bolivia at the start of the month, but this was cancelled only two days before I was meant to fly. Looked forward to that one, it might happen later this year. At the end of the month, my girlfriend and I spent the weekend in Birmingham for my birthday.

Bucharest

Another short trip, this time to Bucharest. I was staying right by the airport, and was only due to be in the country for just over two days. Things didn't entirely go to plan at work which meant I had to stay an extra day. The good news for me is that I had a free afternoon to walk around the city. I was dropped off near the Old City, and explored near there......

I also stumbled across a beautiful book shop, called Cărturești Carusel. The interior is stunning, and although they do have English books, and many more things well worth checking out, I was more amazed with the interior.
