$100 dinner
#68 - Monday, February 6, 2017

Although not the most expensive dinner in the world, this one topped my list as the most expensive meal I have ever had. A piece of trout, with some potatoes and salad costed me around $60 CAD in Oslo, Norway. The beer was a whopping $20 each. The best part of all? The place I ate at was an outdoor patio with no shelter and I had to get my meal from a counter as there were no wait staff. Believe me when I tell you this was the cheapest place I found within a one hour search around the city to eat. I walked by places that costed over $400 a plate and $280 for a glass of wine.

The Scream
#67 - Monday, February 6, 2017

Oslo is home to one of my most favorite pieces of art, The Scream. It is one of four pieces that was painted in 1893 by Edvard Munch. The work was originally named in German as Der Schrei der Natur (The Scream of Nature). There are two painted versions and two pastel versions. In 2012, one of the pastel versions was sold at auction for $119,922,600.

A must for anyone visiting Norway is the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo. The museum houses several viking ships that were discovered around the end of the 19th century. The Oseberg ship was completely excavated and is believed to date to around the year 800 AD.

This medieval church was believed to have been built between 1157 and 1216. The church was originally from Gol, Hallingdal, Norway, but relocated to the Norwegian Folk Museum in Oslo around 1880 by King Oscar II.

Oslo, Norway
#64 - Monday, February 6, 2017

Oslo is ranked as one of the most expensive cities in the world. However, the city offers much to see and is where one of my most favorite cheeses is made, Jarlsberg.
