We arrived in Oslo on Friday, January 21st after connecting through Newark on Continental.
|Oslo or bust!|
We landed in Oslo and promptly looked for food before our next flight to Tromso. Although we weren't in the mood for hot dogs at 9am - Oslo had both a "New Orleans" and "San Francisco" hot dog at their airport.

The weekend we were in Tromso happened to also be the weekend of their International Film Festival. Therefore the city was busy and the restaurants full. Since we were still getting our bearings that night, we walked all around town to find a place to eat and settled on Amundsen's Restaurant. It was a warm and cozy spot with good people watching.
|My meal was a fish in wine sauce with potatoes|

Tromso is a city with a rich polar exploration history - apparently it was often the launching point for expeditions to the north pole. Famed explorer Roald Amundsen is a much loved figure by the town and there were several statues in his honor sprinkled around.
