Oslomarka

Oslomarka

As of a week ago, I live in Oslo! I have tons of photos waiting to be blogged about – from various trips around Tromsรธ and the long road trip from Tromsรธ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚
