Norway Memories

After going through my hundreds of photos taken in Norway I decided to do a Photo Friday post with ten images that highlight the beauty of Lillehammer, Norefjell and Oslo.

Here’s the first picture I took at the Maihaugen Open Air Museum in Lillehammer.

I couldn’t help but adore the quirky chandelier hanging in my suite at Norefjell’s Quality Resort & Spa.

Here’s my view of the mountains from my bedroom in Norefjell.

Here’s a picture of Oslo at night. The Grand Cafe is attached to the Grand Hotel which was our home for a few nights. My literary hero Henrik Ibsen ate here every morning.

I could have spent hours at Vigeland Sculpture Park. Here’s another image to help illustrate the incredible detail involved in each sculpture.

Our ride through the forest outside of Oslo was truly unforgettable despite less than stellar weather. Our sleigh ride was followed by a warm campire with traditional food and drinks.

Here’s a shot of a snowboarder completing a round of flips, turns and tricks.

A view from the boat tour in Oslo.

Local hipsters our for their afternoon coffee.

After about an hour wandering through the cemetery, I finally found Ibsen’s grave.

    Oslo looks wonderful! Henrik Ibsen is one of my favorites, too. I'll definitely have to stop at the Grand Cafe when I finally get to visit. Lovely selection of photos.

      I definitely recommend going Angela! I was nervous about the chilly weather but it honestly didn't feel colder than NYC except in the mountains.

    Norway looks stunning. Although I am more of a fair weather beach person unless I'm skiing or in a hot tub :)

    Great photos of Norway! Time didn't permit for us to visit Vigeland Sculpture Park. Guess I will just have to visit again!

    I met a travel writer from SFO who was returning from Norway snowboarding championships. Would like to contact her re: lodging during the Olympic Trials, to be held in Eugene Oregon in June 2012. She is in the photo you posted with the Premier in Oslo on the matadornetwork She is closest to him on the opposite side of you wearing a white jacket. Can you please provide me with her name and email or contact info. I own a home in Eugene that may be available for rent during that event.

      Patricia,

      This is not really the place to be trying to contact other journalists. I also can't just give this info to you. However, I have contacted the person you are referring to and provided her with you email.
