Journal Entry:
Got up later than I should (but still way to early), got ready packed, had a quick breakfast (similar spread to yesterday), and caught the tram to Central Station. Got to the station with about 20 minutes til the train left, plenty of time to make a reservation (required in Norway). Unfortunately the morning train was sold out, so I get to spend another day in Oslo.

Went to Holmenkollen (the olympic ski jump) it was interesting, and the view from the top was nice, but it was also crowded and over all I was a little disappointed.

The train to Stockholm was long made longer by the fact that the only seats available were in a smoking car.

The Hostel I'm staying at is on a huge, beautiful, 1888 sailing vessel.

Thanks: Tack (Tock)
Beer: Ol (Earl)
