Our 1.5 day Stay in Oslo

“Oslo feels like home.”

That’s the remark a kid born and raised in Toronto might say. With the weather reflecting the same weather in Toronto, most people having the ability to speak English and a modern feel to architecture, we’ve yet to feel the stronger European vibes that a city like London or Paris may bring to mind.

We were a little offset by prices but after a quick google search it was revealed that citizens in Norway on average make about 75k a year. Which is much higher than that of many canadian cities.

Here is a breakdown of our stay in Oslo:

  • Double cheeseburgers from Burger King – 29 nok
  • Groceries (Pita bread, grape tomatoes, 3 bananas, sliced ham) – 75 nok
