    A Taste of Hamburg

    Getting to Hamburg was an entertaining mission full of surprises. Leaving Copenhagen early in the morning, there was a replacement bus service to the middle of nowhere, literally. If you Google Roedby Fergen there are no images, but hopefully this post will change that fact. From here, the train unexpectedly boarded a boat… where we journeyed across the channel and entered Germany, country number four.

    A Personal Walking Tour of Copenhagen

    After having a moderate lie-in after the nightmare journey to Copenhagen from Gothenburg (I won’t go into too much detail, but I will never ever visit Malmo ever again in my entire life), it was time to embrace the sunshine. The first stop of the day was to grab a hot dog for breakfast outside the city hall. Passing a couple of other hot dog stands around Tivoli Gardens, we were very selective and didn’t want to panic buy.

    24 Hours Visiting Gothenburg

    Arriving in the evening from Oslo, I met my good friend Sven (we studied together in Canada back in 2009) at the station, who welcomed me to his home country with a beer and a selection of traditional Swedish sweets – thanks Sven! We took the chance to check out the bar at the Clarion Hotel Post, housed in the old, giant and refurbished post office. Sweden was getting off to a good start.

    Budget Things to Do in Oslo

    In roughly 27 hours I hit the main tourist attractions in Oslo and also opted for the budget route as it’s one of the more expensive cities I’m visiting this summer. After spending £20 on a chicken dinner when I arrived, I didn’t want to ‘waste’ money on entrance fees and took to walking by foot rather than public or private transport. This was a great decision as wandering through residential and quieter areas gave me a glimpse into normal Nordic life in the city, while I earned my first daily total of 20k on the FitBit.

    Bergen Olso Train Journey

    Absolutely stunning and I smiled the entire time. Taking the 7.57 train from Bergen to Oslo was the first ticket I booked, before both the flight to Norway and the interrail ticket itself.
