Disclaimer: No actual babies were kicked or harmed during our stay in Oslo.
We had just finished hiking Trolltunga, a picturesque but difficult 22-kilometer hike. Once we regained feeling in our legs, we knew it was time to head east to the Norwegian capital: Oslo. We said our goodbyes to Pilar, our lovely couchsurfing host in Ullensvang, and boarded a 7 hour bus ride from there to Oslo. This bus ride was actually longer than our flight from New York to Bergen! It was the typical “we’ll have seven hours to write and be productive!” Of course we ended up staring out the dirty windows at the gorgeous green countryside instead. If you’re looking to go from hiking Trolltunga to Oslo, there are a couple of bus services, but unfortunately any way you cut it it’s going to be a long ride.
