Nineth Trip: Oslo

While in Bodø Stinkypaw had contacted a few Norwegians through Postcrossing wanting to swap cards from their regions with her in Arctic Norway.  We got to see Norway that way... on postcards!

Among those who sent cards, one lady was very kind, and even suggested some places to visit if in Oslo. Since we were going to be in Oslo for a few days on our way home Stinkypas had contacted her and asked if she wanted to meet.  She  had sent so many postcards from Norway, showing us different areas of their beautiful country, with explanations,We just had to meet her.  And we did.  We even got to send a few cards with her, which was nice. 

The plan was a two hours meeting with her, and it lasted well over six.  We talked about so many things, such an interesting encounter and warm lady.  A great note to end our Norway adventure.
Oh and I made a new friend at the airport... Check him out.

Ain't he a cute little guy, since there were so many moose around Bodø it seemed appropriate to travel with one too.

From Oslo, we had a stop in England for a few hours, time for refreshments...

and off we were heading for home...
