Favorite thing: So if you need to go to a pharmacy in the middle of the night this is the only place in Oslo where you can get it
It's quite busy in there. So if it's not urgent I would go to another pharmacy.
You'll find it out outside of Oslo City, tram station close to Trafikanten.
If you want to save money don't by meds without prescription here. you might end up paying two or third as much you would do in ordinary food stores.
Favorite thing: Lindoya is an idyllic little island and is worth visiting on your fjord sightseeing in Oslo.In 1920, Lindoya was the Oslo base for the pioneer Norwegian airline, Det Norske Luftfartrederiý, and its seaplanes
This is a summer place, the people here usually live here during the summer. There are 289 cabins here.
Favorite thing: Favorite thing: I would recommend a trip with the ferry to see the Oslo fjord and the islands lying around there. I would especially recommend, our Main Island "called Hovedøya It's also a great bathing and camping place. You can also visit the idyllic Lindøya Gressholmen and Nakholmen. Taking a roundtrip with the ferry takes around 20 minutes and it's not more expensive than taking any other public transportation in Oslo. IT'S FOR THE SAME PRICE. The boats leave harbor called Vippetangen. Bus nr 60 will take you there there (it takes five minutes) from Jernbanetorget close to the pharmacy.

Favorite thing: Lindøya is an idyllic little island and is worth visiting on your fjord sightseeing in Oslo. In 1920, Lindøya was the Oslo base for the pioneer Norwegian airline, and its seaplanes
this is a summer place, meaning that the people here usually only live here during the summer. There are 289 cabins here
Favorite thing: Trip planner 1 : exploring oslo by walking
jernbanetorget - nationalteateret 19 minutter
Karl johansgate (our main street)
university of oslo
Aker brygge 5 minutter
Nationaltateret--- Majorstua 25 minutes
The royal palace
the beautiful palace park
Bogstadveien shooping street
Vigelandsparken 5 minutes
And then you can walk the whole way back or using public transportation
Favorite thing: If you want to do some low paid jobs, like driving the bus, being a postman, working in restaurants etc., I believe there are good opportunities. The waiter working at the cafe next to my apartment only speaks English. They also need people in the health care system or play garden, but you might end up speaking like a kid ;)
If you want another type of job, you'll have to make an effort to learn Norwegian, if you don't want to work within engineering or computers.
I will try to make some suggestions based on some roommates of mine, who're foreigners but still have managed to get a job here.
1) You must know some basic Norwegian language.
2) A good education will help you a lot and/or work experience
3) Any other qualities like speaking many languages, like to do hard work. Being tall and strong can you make you find a job in a grocery stores etc.
4) You should meet up in person and hand out your application and CV, if it's possible.
5) You also need some references, from your former employers. I doubt they'll ever call your home country, but it should be in your application.
There's a popular Norwegian internet page called Finn (finn.no) anything you need, you can find it here. There’s a "jobb" page, where it's possible to make your own ad. Make an introduction, a nice picture, work experiences etc. and hope for the best.
Normal working hours are maximum nine hours per day or 40 hours per seven days.
For different work rotas: the weekly working hours are 38 or 36 hours for a seven-day period depending on your work rota
Permitted: an average calculation of working hours. This requires a written agreement.
Just remember that most (arbeidsgivere) require good Norwegian skills.
All employees (who begin their work) before 30 October are entitled to 25 working day’s vacation by the end of the holiday year.
Favorite thing: If you just need some entertainment for your kids, you should go here. There´s a lot of things to explore and many places to get lost. I have been here with some special need children and they loved this place.
all days (not mondays) from 10-20
There´s also a small cateria there.
fares: kids 150, adults free
Fondest memory: adress:
Sandakervegen 24 c
Favorite thing: is the national Museum for technology, industry, science and medicine and the museum has over 20 permanent and temporary exhibitions about energy, oil, industry, medicine, airplanes, cars and trains.
Free intrance with the oslo Pass
very suitable for kids
Fondest memory: Some years ago I worked with autistic kids, and this was the place we justed to hang out. Many exiting things to do and to see...one kid really liked the elevators;)
Favorite thing: Popular pool near the centre of Oslo, just across the street from the Munch Museum.
2 indoor swimming pools (28 degrees celsius) 2 open-air pools (open in the summer), water slide diving bord
A little nice warm pool for the youngest.
free with the Oslo pass
If you visit this place in the weekend be aware of the amount of kids and families and keep an eye on your kids. Sometimes there are just to many people here.
Fondest memory: How to get here?
with metro number 5 to Tøyen, five minutes walk , close to the Zological museum.
Favorite thing: Take the boat from Aker Harbour to Nesodden (20 minutes). Nesodden is a peninsuala and is situated outside of Oslo and it's a really nature pearl. It's not included in the public transporting prize. I believe the prize is around 50 NK one way. Or you can actually drive her, but I prefer the boat trip.The boat from Aker Harbour to Nesodden goes frequently , around each hour, and also at night.
And Alexander Rybak, the boy who won the Eurovison song contest last year is from Nesodden and was raised here! He said that if he got to choose, the Eurovison contest should be held here. But i doubt it would be room enough ;)
Nesodden is the Peninsula that makes the Oslo fjord til bend at the top. The history of Nesodden is impressed by the fjord, the wood and the farm industri, but also by its nearness to the capital
The first people of Nesodden belonged to the people of Nøsvedt and they came here 8000 years ago. Since then, many more and today the innhabitants count 16.000 . Many Locals are patriots and show big intererest in culture of the parish, nature and history. My anchestors are originally from this place.
But first of all Nesodden is dream for boat and beach entusiasts. Many people here have boat houses along the coast.
Fondest memory: sitting in the boat house and watching the cruise ships passing by.
