During my trip to Norway this May for the DRS // CUMULUS 2013 Conference, I had the opportunity to do some sightseeing through the beautiful city of Oslo. Although the weather started out cold at the beginning of the week, we ended our journey with 80 degree days that had me rummaging through my suitcase to find something to wear that wasn’t woolen and warm.
Here is a glimpse into the architecture and landscape I found myself wandering through on the beautiful spring days.
Traditional Norwegian dinner (meat + potatoes!)
You can find rows and rows of black licorice in the candy isle. One of my favorites was this “Dark Humor” flavored packaging from Lakerol – hohoho.
You might find it interesting to know that every building in Norway that costs over a certain amount is required (by law) to build in an element of public art. What a wonderful way to combine the public with their own art and community.
