Summer Day in Oslo

August 18, 2013 § 2 Comments

Sandwiched between a rainy Friday and a cloudy, drizzly Sunday was a warm and beautiful summer Saturday. Stian and I started the morning with fresh juice (using his awesome juice maker) and watched an episode titled Is There a Creator? from the series Through the Wormhole (narrated by Morgan Freeman). Stian shares the same love for science and documentaries that I do and we take no hesitation in indulging each other.

When the afternoon rolled around, we decided to take a walk through Aker Brygge and Tjuvholmen. There was a multicultural festival going on at Rådhusplassen, so we enjoyed walking through the crowd and experiencing the array of ecclectic food smells wafting through the air.

Aker Brygge and the newly expanded/developed Tjuvholmen are so amazing to walk through on a sunny day. Stian and I moseyed through, stopping for some gelato and people watching, and even checked out the view from the tower elevator.

We returned to the apartment about 3 hours later and settled into the couch to watch Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead (Stian’s trying to convert me to juicing 😉 ). Afterwards we took a sunset walk through Akershus Festning – a medieval castle built to protect Oslo. To close out the perfect summer Saturday, Stian made an amazing steak dinner while I skyped with my mama and stepdad. Dinner was enjoyed with red wine and good conversation and followed by watching Oblivion (with Tom Cruise).

    It was such an amazing day! 😀

  • I am assuming Stian is Christian! You need to help us by figuring out an American version of your companion’s name.

    Fantastic pixs – hope you are backing them up to a secure storage.

    I enjoyed Oblivion and seeing it a number of times. I like the purity of it lines, design, plot and acting too.

    I worry a lot when so called scientists try to handle questions such as
    “Is there a creator?” The empirical scientific method is so abstracted from real human life it could not possibly handle such a question nor is it any of its business. Even a good politician, or a poet, will always have a better grasp of the question than a western type empirical scientist will ever have..
