I had other ideas… Saw the Royal Guard outside the Palace and figured I’d go bother him!

Rested and refreshed, yes you guessed it – time to go figured out what the Norwegian nightlife was life. This was probably where I’ve had the most expensive beer ever. It’s not like the beer was different from regular beer, it was just so expensive relative to most cities. Turns out, alcohol is pretty expensive in Norway… in fact, I think most things are hence why they have one of the highest wages of any European city.

Next day, bright and early, headed toward to the train station area where there were loads of cafes and as you might have guess, lots of places for a quick breakfast!

And with that, we have the conclusion of the Nordic Expedition! 🙂 I can’t promise that there won’t be any more sequels, Iceland has already been covered in previous posts but Denmark is still fairly uncharted territory! 😉
