A Winter Wonderland

This is one of my favorite places so far. Oslo has a fabulous transportation system and you can get around by subway, tram, bus or train. It is so convenient and I have not missed my car at all!! Many people have talked about this spot, so I had to check it out. Line 1 of the subway goes up the fjord. Once at the end of the stop, people get off and ski or sled. The subway is packed with people and kids with sleds or skiis. This spot is about a 22 minute ride from the city. I was not prepared (clothes wise) to hang out, so these pictures are coming right off the subway.

The pictures do not show the true beauty. I have seen the beautiful snow fall after a storm in Michigan but this is not even comparable. I was awestruck. I will be going again soon, and will be ready to walk around next time. I have never skiied--so I will just a take a "little" walk!

Winter Night View

This is not my picture, but wanted to share it. This picture is on the Oslo Daily Photo blog and was taken my Stormel. I love this shot!! It shows a great picture of the city that I am living in!
