Day 1 of the Norway in a Nutshell - Arriving into Oslo
I was rather tired out (backache!) from the long flight from Doha to Oslo, and was appreciative that the flight was broken into two legs of about six to seven hours each, which gave me a chance to get out to move around a bit. It was my first time in Doha, and I was surprised by how packed it was.
Upon reaching Oslo, we cleared out of the airport pretty quickly. The train ride from the airport to Oslo was a smooth and quiet one, and the train was pretty modern. Upon reaching the Central Station, we had to walk just a little bit to reach our hotel, Thom Hotel Opera House. The weather was great, and wasn't too cold.
Opera House, Oslo
As we did not have anything planned for today, we decided to visit the tourist information center. From the centre, we proceed to walk through the city centre, passing by the Oslo Cathedral. I was busy using my Yi360 camera to record many virtual 360 photos, for the purpose of posting into the Google Street View, but also to build up a virtual tour portfolio via Kuula (seemingly the best option so far as a repository for VR 360 photos).
The weather was surprisingly sunny and while there is a constant gust of wind, I was able to get by with my dry-fit tee. The waterfront area, together with the Opera House was nice, and we also went over to the SALT area. I believe there are other interesting areas which I have yet to explore, and will allocate more time tomorrow to explore in more depth. The jetlag gradually got to me, and the night ended early.
