…and the winner is – oslo!


So basically, Oslo is amazing. We loved every minute of our Norwegian #tweedlesontour adventure.

Oslo’s list of accolades sums up our experience nicely;

◊ Most liveable city

◊ Most useless but friendly tour guide ever…bless him

◊ Friendliest people

◊ Most delicious cheese

◊ Fantastic food markets

◊ Best coffee culture – come on London, up your game!

◊ Best looking men….everywhere you look

◊ Coolest, casual style – male, female, young, old – everyone was just so cool

◊ Most beautiful harbour – second to Auckland’s of course

◊ The freshest, clearest air

◊ Brightest blue and green hues

◊ Most stunning scenery out on the ferry around the islands off the harbour – highly recommend this!

◊ Coolest fortress area

◊ Best restaurant setting – right on the harbour! Hello Auckland viaduct

◊ Fantastic shopping – goodbye bank account, hello winter wardrobe!

I could not recommend Oslo more highly, it was the best weekend away. We loved it for what it was, but also for what it reminded us of. It’s a lot like New Zealand, we decided it was a mixture of Auckland and the Marlborough Sounds. The modernity, cleanliness, friendliness and natural beauty might be a long way from home in km’s but in reality, it felt extremely close.

Thank you Oslo – we love you!
