Musical: Singin In The Rain, Oslo

Last Saturday I went to the musical singin in the rain at Folketeatret in Oslo, Norway.

Stenography is classic old Hollywood which all feels obvious but possible and beautiful and tasteful. In fact it really make and impression and I thought it was great.

The actors where good and in general I think they where real good and delivered what I had expected and the guy playing Cosmo had great timing and the one who really made the difference if you ask me.

So what about the music, I can just say it’s a classic and it’s old but good. This must be the mother of all musicals and even this one is in Norwegian it’s great and I highly recommend it!

This weekend has been a bit more intense tha usually because I had to get back earlier today to Sweden. In order to celebrate my dad who turned 55 earlier this week. Where a nice party and I got to see my sister for the first time since Christmas.

So what have I done more this weekend? Friday I drove up to Oslo and my girlfriend G where at a film shoot and came home after me so I had some time to watch 2 episodes of the Tv serie breakout kings. And than we had some wine and just hung out.

Saturday we drove to Brovoll which is about a 1 hour drive north of Oslo into the maountains and went cross country skiing and it was so calm and peaceful and the nature where just amazing so at one point I just had to stop just to enjoy the quiteness, amazing. And the view where stunning lite a winter wonderland.


Later that night we drove back to Oslo and went to see Singin In the Rain at Folketeatret. Great musical and great show which ended a great day.

Short trip to Oslo. Again.

So past midnight and way past my bedtime my I just can’t sleep. I really have to try harder after I posted this. 

After work today I’m heading back to Oslo again for the weekend but it will be a much shorter trip than usually because I will celebrate my dads birthday back home I Sweden again on Sunday. So I should get the opportunity to try out my new camera more then.

Plan for the weekend is to hang out with my girlfriend G and go skiing and that’s about it. What’s you plans? 

Towards Oslo

I’m on the bus heading towards Oslo and Norway for the weekend. But this time is a bit different. A few weeks ago I saw the final concert with the Swedish band Kent but this weekend it’s a new concert and a new artist. This time it’s to see the biggest artist in Sweden, Håkan Hellström. So me and G will go with a few Swedish friends that lives in Oslo and some Norwegian that will experience him for the first time. I’m super excited. 

Been thinking a lot about I best could share his music with you because all of it is in Swedish.

So hete you got a youtube video.

Once again I’m back in Oslo and so are my girl friend G. Last weekend and this week most of it has been affected by the trip to Florence, Italy. But this weekend we have just been in Oslo. So good to be back in Oslo and just relax and recharge my batteries. But next weekend I will be out on the roads again nothing major but there will be a trip to Sweden in order to attend a lifesavers conference. In fact this was the last weekend in Oslo for the next three weeks so needed some time at home. But really looking forward for what is planned. And will keep you posted.

Here is a photo of G (my girlfriend) in front of the Royal castle here in Oslo, Norway from out walk yesterday.

Another beach day

Yes, it’s just that great weather right now here in Oslo and I would say that the weather right now makes this a pretty perfect place to be. But I haven’t vacation yet so I worked during the day and right away after work me and my girlfriend G took us out to the beach where we took a swim today again and grilled and just relaxed at the beach. Today we visited another beach at Bygdø we visited the beach Bygdø sjøbad which is a real nice place near a harbour and a sailing school.

I really appreciate to be able to this kind of things after work. Really gives quality to life if you ask me. By the way this was yesterday but I got similar plans for today but I think we will be staying in a park of the more central parts of the city. 

Reading at the beach

Yesterday I had a real beautiful day it was like summer. We have about 26 degrees Celcsuus and clear blue skies and sun. The weather I just might call perfect.
So me and my girlfriend G biked and walked out to the beach at Huk here in Oslo, Norway.

I had my first swim in the sea estimated 10-12 degrees Celsius in the water and by that I beat the rest of my family for the first swim of the year. That just includes Scandinavian or Nordic countries where the first swim is a efficient way to cool down.

Then I ended the day with some grilling out on the balcony. Yes it was a pretty perfect day. Love that kind of days. How are your perfect day? 

X-Games Big Air

X-games has been in Oslo the last four days and I don’t think I ever consumed so much extreme sports before. Started out Thursday night by watching some skateboarding on tv. And the Friday I watched the ladies super half pipe on tv which was awesomeBut the big thing for me during X-games in Oslo was when j went to see the big air competitions with S yesterday on Tøyen parken. The vibe was great and everything was just so cool and had so much fun. Really hope X-games comes back to Oslo soon again. Then the swedes took one bronze medal and one gold medal which didn’t make it worse.

Then I’ve got to admit that today I couldn’t just don’t watch any x-games so I watched the men’s ski super half pipe. Pretty cool I got to say. 

Have so video from the big air event. Will see if I can upload it to the blog as well later maybe.

   
 
   

Visit from S

Friday and later tonight one of my best friends S from Sweden arrives to Oslo and will stay here during the weekend. My girlfriend G is away so there is some plans. 

Tomorrow we will go watch X-Games Oslo and the big air competition. Which I’m pretty excited about. But tonight we will just catch up at home is the plan.

Will be a great weekend and I’m so excited about it.

  

Best Burgers in Oslo

Kverneriet – The Classic

Tasted The Boss and The Burglar. I’ve eaten some burger but this is among the best burgers in the world and definatly the best burger in Oslo. It’s a classic burger with cheddar, burger, some veritables and it’s just how I want at classic burger to taste. It’s cool interior and has a friendly staff.

The place is located near Majorstuen Subway station and if you will be more than four you will probably need to book a table. It’s real popular and no wonder why.

Hva Skjer – The New

Cool place in the district Torshov in the same building as a concert venue. But the burger here is cooked over open fire and the taste is something different to everything else I’ve ever eaten when it comes to burgers. It’s Asian influences makes it not only delicious but also something new compared to what I’m used to.

Gogrilla – Take away

In my opinion the best take away burgers in Oslo comes from this food truck that’s often is located near Akerbrygge and city hall. Great burgers and nice sodas that’s a bit more different than the regular cola or beer.
