Wanderlust: Norway - Return to Oslo and Belgium

On our way back to Oslo we didn't planned anything, but to make the travelling a bit more interesting we visited the stavkirke in Ringebu (which was in scaffolding), the Norsk Vegmuseum in Fåberg ( a museum about how the roads and tunnels were build through the years), and we passed by Lillehammer (a place where the 1994 Olympic Wintergames were held.)
At the end of the day we arrived at a camping with a beach and lots of mousquitos, causing us to eat our beach-barbeque meal in the tent... .The sunset was beautiful though.The next day we got up early to drive the last kilometers to Sognsvann, where we parked the car for free and took a tram to Oslo (because it is quite expensive to park your car in Oslo and you have to pay toll to enter the city).
 
We visited the University of Olso (faculty of Law), the gardens of Slottet (Royal Palace), we shopped at Granit, we went to see the Akershus fortress, strolled around the docks, ordered a coke and a coffee and watched the masted ships.
Afterwards we walked to the stunning and impressive Opera House.

It got closer to 6 PM, so we headed to the docks where our ferry to Denmark was waiting.


Leaving Norway behind us, sailing the Skagerrak to Denmark, we enjoyed a good meal and the magnificent sunset. In the cabin we spend the night.
And we woke up early to arrive in Frederikshavn, Denmark. Now only a few kilometers (1022!) to Belgium ;-)

Thank you, Norway, for your beautiful views, rich nature, culture, hospitality, neat campings and facilities and great weather! This trip was an excellent acquaintance and I'm definitely going back one day!
Thank you, fiancé, for driving me around and being such a nice company :-)
