Oslomarka

As of a week ago, I live in Oslo! I have tons of photos waiting to be blogged about – from various trips around Tromsø and the long road trip from Tromsø to Oslo – but first some photos from today’s bike ride through Oslomarka (the forest around Oslo).

I started with a long climb – about 14 km of climbing, 450 m up. It was very doable though, and the weather was perfect: sunny but not too warm and a nice breeze. I was proud to see how far down Oslo was when I turned around at some point 🙂

Looking back to Oslo after a long climb Small lake

My destination for the day was the lake Skjennungen – a very pretty place where I enjoyed a long lunch break 🙂

My destination: Skjennungen - beautiful place!

From there it was basically downhill all the way, lots of fun!

I loved the skies today Lots and lots of forest

I couldn’t go too fast though, as there were lots of people around – with strollers, with kids on bikes, there were almost traffic jams sometimes. But who cares, everyone was in a good mood and I stopped for another break in the sun at a small lake nears Sognsvann, before cycling back into Oslo.

Starting the long downhill back to Oslo Nice place for another break in the sun :)

What a perfect Sunday – I think I’m going to like it here! 🙂

    Hei.
    Jeg føler litt sporadisk med på siden din og ser at du har flyttet sørover. Det er jo litt sørgelig siden du tok de fineste bilder fra Nordnorge som jeg kjenner til. Men jeg ønsker deg masse lykke til i Hovedstaden!! Og så er jeg spent hva Sørnorge har å by på 😉
    Mange hilsen fra Trondheim 🙂

      Hei Franzi,
      Tusen takk, det er veldig fint å høre! Ja, jeg kommer til å savne de spektakulære landskapper (og ikke minst lyset!) i Nord-Norge men jeg håper at jeg klarer å ta fine bilder også her i sør 🙂
      Hilsen,
      Hanneke 🙂
