My ears didnt hurt on the way back either which was good. Going, they were very painful despite the special earplugs I was using.
In Oslo we stayed at the Savoy Hotel which sounds very grand but is quite ordinairy by Norwegian standards. It is slap bang in the centre of Oslo just a short walk from the Nasjonnalgalleriat which is the equivelent of the Tate in London. You can walk to most places of interest or take the short boat ride to the peninsula where most of the big museums are- like the Folk Museum, The Viking Ships Museum, the Kon Tiki Museum and the Polar Ship ~Museum. We did that last time we went to Oslo four years ago so this time we did the castle, the Film Museum, the Vigeland Museum and Sculpture park and the Historik Museum. Our feet ached quite a bit after all of these I can tell you! We had a short boat "mini-cruise" around the fiord too which was fun which lasted about 50 minutes with a guide telling you about the places of interest and the islands in the fiord.
