The Akerselva river runs through Oslo from Maridalsvannet and exits in the Oslo fjord by the new opera house. The river is 8-9 kilometers long, and along it runs a nice walkway system for those who enjoy hiking.
I've thought of walking by the river for a long time, and the other day I got the chance to walk along the river for a little while. It's really nice, and obviously lots of people enjoy this area.
This is the oldest restaurant in Oslo (that is still serving). It's from 1857 and used to be the meeting place for actors and actresses from the Christiania Theater back in the old days.
Engebret is situated on "Bankplassen" (the bank square) and is definitely worth a look inside. Unfortunately, the prices are so high that I can't afford to eat there, but I did enjoy something cold to drink.
I haven't watched even one minute of the World Cup, but lots of people love to follow every minute of it. When the weather is nice, like now, it's probably very nice to sit outside in the sun and watch the matches on a huge screen. This is from the castle, Akershus festning, in Oslo center.
We have run this blog for quite a while, and feel like we need a break to do other things. We will still post photos, but not as often as before. Hopefully you will continue to visit us from time to time. :-)
