Today I went to a new city in Norway: Tønsberg! As shown on the map here it’s not really that far away from Oslo. A 20 minutes train ride from Sandefjord, the town where I live this summer.
During summer time Tønsberg pier is crowded with tourists and locals. Restaurants located right next to each other makes it all very competitive. And the view from the pier makes the prices sky high!
Polar bears up north, skiing in the mountains, taking the cruise ship through the fjords or shopping in Oslo?
There are so many things you shouldn’t miss when visiting Norway. It’s a huge country, but worth traveling through. I gathered a list of the top things to see and do when going to Norway.
This summer I chose to go work in Norway. I study and live in Copenhagen, but during my two months summer holidays I like to save some money for the next year. This time I went to Sandefjord, which is approx. a 2 hours drive away from the capital Oslo. I have been here 4 months last year – and actually have been working seasonal jobs in Norway 3 times before, which makes this my 4th time in Norway.
Have you ever thought about working and traveling at the same time? There are lots op opportunities for work & travel in Europe. I have worked more in Norway and Switzerland than I have worked in my home country Denmark. Why shouldn’t I, if it’s possible, easy and brings enough money on my account for further traveling?
Norway and Switzerland are some of the countries in the world with the highest salaries. (more…)
