  7. I love Jan Henning Larsen’s pictures – They are telling a story, opens for several interpretations, are full of small details ( the more you look at them, the more you see) and it seems like the artist had fun making them!

  12. We started out at the Island Bygdøy, an Island with several museums. Our first stop was at The Fram Museum, a museum about the world’s most famous polarship: The Fram. The actuall ship is located within the museum and you can even go on-board on the ship!
  13. Our next stop was the Kon-Tiki museum, telling the story of the Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl and his travel’s on reed boats.
  14. Our third and last stop at Bygdøy was the The Viking Ship Museum, the home of The Oseberg Ship ( picture below), The Gokstad Ship and several other items from the Viking age.
