Ah Oslo, the Tiger City. Land of Der Schrei der Natur / The Scream of Nature. Owner of a giant Santa Claus holding a… an ice-cream. Let’s leave it at that. The royal palace is surprisingly minimalist, which is a recurring theme of these Nordic palaces that contrasts with the much more extravagant English ones.
Ah Oslo, if only you can be more affordable. At NZD 60 per person per basic meal with a beer, it makes Switzerland look like a bargain holiday hunter’s destination. Apparently, only Iceland tops Oslo in terms of the cost of visiting.
