Case of the Mondays #28: Oslo Harbor


Ah, it's another Monday. The dreaded start of another week. Work has you down? The email inbox has exploded over the weekend? The to-do list is growing faster than you can cross things out? The weather is getting colder? Or not getting colder fast enough if you are down south?

Fret not! Another installment of Case of the Mondays is here to help you deal with it. Or at least distract your mind from all that as you scroll through and enjoy a big panoramic image of an awesome place. Just click on the image below to open up the full version (give it some time to load) and use your arrow keys to move around and see all the details. Then click anywhere or hit Esc to close it. That's it for Dos and Don'ts. Now pop open the full panorama and pan around!

This particular image is of Oslo harbor with the Viking Museum on the left standing on Bygdøy - the Museum "Island", and Oslo's city hall on the right - the red brick structure reminiscent of Soviet-style architecture which hides the historic old buildings of downtown Oslo behind it.

The day I took this panorama I did not go to the Viking Museum, but I did spend some time at Norsk Folkemuseum - the living architecture museum displaying buildings from different times and parts of Norway, similar, albeit much smaller, to Ukrainian museum at Pirogovo. After Folkemuseum, I boarded one ferry that took me to the city hall and then made my way onto another ferry that took me to Nakholmen island full of summer homes. Normally overflowing with city dwellers in the summer, there was barely anyone here on this cold  April afternoon so I had it almost all to myself as I wondered around while waiting for the last ferry of the day to pick me up.

Alright now, I'm off to get breakfast, and you should probably get back to work. Or check out the rest of Case of the Mondays series. It really is up to you :)
