Since this really has been the best summer in a very, very long time, I thought I'd share some back-in-the-days summer photos from Oslo - the great summer city! Trym and I haven't for one second regretted that we didn't travel anywhere this year. Sun, sea, swimming, ice cream....some things never change. Enjoy a little nostalgia trip!
