Slept a bit on a sofa on second floor where there are no drought. But it is not really comfortable. I was awake to catch the first morning bus to Oslo train station. It departed at 5.30. Not much traffic at that time so I was in Oslo around 6.15.

Following the light from buses to trains. Image to the right.

I knew there would not be any trains for a while so I had time to look around a bit. It was nice to see the sun rising from different places in the station and from the platform. 

I was lucky this time. They opened the ticket office at 7.00 and there was a train departing at 7.32.

A view at an old Station seen from inside train at a stop.

 Had a nap on the train and was in Katrineholm at 12,09. Took a long time but I did not have to change trains. And I had a row of seats for myself.  Then I only had to catch a bus to get home. 

What I did in the afternoon? Guess! Slept of course. 

I was not the only one taking a nap on the train.

  1. Hi. I've come here through SkyWatch Friday

    One of the good points of travelling by train is to be able to take a nap. :-)
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos. I especially like the lovely station seen from the train.

  2. I'm a morning person so I would totally go with that too :-)

  3. You must be tired from the travelling. At least the weather is beautiful. I always nap when I'm on long distance travel.
