Mylene’s Visit: Viking Ship Museum

First of all, I would like to greet Charles a very happy beerday!!!!!…. May you have all your heart’s desire ๐Ÿ˜‰

One of the most visited museums in Oslo is the Viking Ship Museum. I probably have been in this museum 5 times or more but I never get tired of it. The museum has 3 big ships on display. The Oseberg, Gokstad and Tune and very good collection of Viking handcraft.

Last Thursday (16 February 2006), a friend from Berlin, Germany, came to visit. She was one of my colleagues when I was working at the airport in Manila. I am really glad that we were able to connect even when we have not seen each other for 5 years. I do not have a lot of filipino friends in Norway and it is unfortunate. I am quite lucky that I get the pleasure of friends visiting us in Norway. Like everyone else who have visited us (Lei, Philip, Shiey, Alben, Cris, Benneth, my family, Jenneth…), Mylene was like a breath of fresh air to me. Her visit made me pause and breathe. The Viking Ship Museum was one of the places I showed her.

  1. i learned alot as well in a short span of time. from the culture to politics. and also Norwegians are definitely warm people and I never felt in my entire life to have sincere friends

  2. Sha, Oslo or Norway in General may be a very expensive place to live in but we have a good social system. I think that you will enjoy living here. I hope that your plans to move here or to England will push through.

    Renny, I think it helps a lot to be married to a viking ๐Ÿ™‚ I was able to explain a lot of things to Mylene which my husband told me (history and culture). You would probably be a better host ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Great Stuff and good pics – as a Viking myself: I know what I am talking about you know:-) Glad to hear you’re friend Mylene had a great time in Oslo – no wonder, with you as a host!

  4. you are breaking my heart
    from bygdoy alle this is one of my escape… cross to bygdoy walked over the forest towards the museum
    take the water ferry back to town….

    maybe i should just pack and move there
    Damn I have the right and move anywhere in Europe and Oslo captivated my heart, made my hair white from the sky rocketing prices… but somehow when I discovered how much the city has to offer, I had an insomia about the prices….

    god natt al

    Charles, you are welcome. I see that you had a wonderful time with Odd on your special day… Hope that we would have the pleasure of your visit one day. You can take Odd with you if you like. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Vampus, thank you. Although I have seen some bambis in Oslo (we used to live there), it is not as frequent as I see them here. A benefit we enjoy at the country side ๐Ÿ™‚
