With the first weekend of good weather, I took to the hills around Oslo on my mountain bike. This time I went with Ingvild, Live, Kaspars, Baiba and Marco. It was nice to have travelling companions for once We started from Frognersetteren and had an easy trip downhill most of the way. We did have a brief uphill excursion through some seriously rough stuff. I don’t think I’m very good at taking it easy and spent most of my time falling off my bike or attempting, and usually failing, to ride through stupidly deep mud. Lots of fun though and we all made it back in one piece
The 17th of May is the biggest public holiday of the year in Norway. All the Norwegian go crazy! They also dress up in funky traditional costumes. The girls wear striking little outfits called “bunad”. I headed into town to meet up with Marte and Ingvild, plus Baiba and my work colleagues Kaspars, Ron and Marco. A little rain shower dampened things a little bit, but the streets were still filled with partying Norwegians

Harriet and I paid a visit to Frederik’s Church, a spectacular looking church in København, Denmark.
I also have a Norwegian translation of this post.
