Things we did in Oslo, Norway
Learning that ‘Speaking Out Matters’ with Fred & Toca Loca at the Nobel Peace Centre
As we are learning on this trip... sometimes you just get lucky and discover 'gold dust' in terms of the perfect place to support your children's education.... perhaps not academically but in becoming a more well rounded human being. What an opportunity to visit the...read more

Head here and you can visit the truly unmissable Nobel Peace Centre! A highlight for us from across our whole European Roadtrip!
Still not convinced? Here’s another one:
To a person, the Oslo residents/visitors are smartly dressed and appear to have little to no cares in the world…. it does on the face of it, look a pretty great place to live…. if a little expensive to eat out!!! But it’s easy to see why Norway has come up as the most happiest place in the world to live in 2018!
