All Over Oslo

Category:Norway Tags : 

Frogner Park is the largest sculpture park in the world and is full of adults and children and statues - statues of children and adults. I saw so many different things that I lost count.

I do not know all the names of the statues or the names of the people who made them, but I do remember that a man called Gustav Vigeland made many of them and was very important in Norwegian art. My favourite piece by him was the ‘Angry Boy’. I think that, if I went outside and had forgotten to put on my clothes, I would probably be angry too.

I also liked the statue of all the children playing instruments. I should have brought a recorder from Hungary and joined them in a few tunes.

Rebeca and her father, Audun, took me to Aker Brygge and I saw the home of King Harald V. Being a king is similar to being the Gnome Chief.

I also visited Sankt Hans Høgen and Karl Johann Street, where I saw some wonderful things including amazing Troll figures.

Another place was Akershus  Festning – It means Castle or Fortress – They started building it in 1290’s, which is a very long time ago. It has been a castle, a prison and a place to bury important members of the royal family. Rebeca said that it is haunted by a ghost, but we did not see it.

We finally visited a very interesting museum. I learned all about the Vikings, saw their boats, carts and many other things. It was really fascinating. Vikings were very clever people and travelled all over the world long before there was a postal service. I would not have travelled so quickly in Viking days.

Jumble

I am a little lost bear. I have lost my owner, my friends, my home and my memory. I do have some cloudy memories of a little girl but I cannot see her face when I close my eyes. I cannot remember anything else about my life apart from that. I think my name is Jumble. That was the name given to me by the old lady who found me. I am trying to find my way back home using the postal service as a way to travel around the world.

You are seeing so much history and art, Jumble!
When you finally find your home YOU SHOULD WRITE A BOOK ALL ABOUT YOUR ADVENTURES!!
I like the Viking cart best 🙂
