Visiting Oslo – My experience

Hi everyone,

I hope you are having a wonderful week so far!

Could you guess where have I been last week?

oto

A couple of months ago, I decided to let my adventurous me out to see what happened. I confess I was a bit nervous by the idea of testing my craziness. The next thing I know is I found myself buying a flight to Oslo with my friend, not only to visit the city but also to see one of my favourite bands in the whole entire planet: Twenty One Pilots (I could start making a list now of why am I in love with their music, but it would be endless).

 

I must confess when I left home at 5:00AM in the morning last Friday, I had no expectations about Oslo and I was very lucky that my friend Hyejin organised the trip for me (she is the sweetest friend on Earth, and you don’t want me to start making a list on why, because it would be endless too).

 

For my surprise, the city left me speechless. I honestly cannot describe how positively surprised I am. There is not a single thing I did not love about Oslo: the beautiful colour of the leaves of the trees at the Vigeland park, the stunning and breathtaking paintings and art spread all over the National Gallery and the Munch Museum, the cute and charming wood houses, the peaceful sound of the sea, the boats, and the beautiful streets we walked through… I enjoyed having conversations with our Norweigan neighbour nextdoor every morning and saying good night to the cute cats in our Airbnb flat.

In addition, the performance of Twenty One Pilots was beyond impressive. Being a small tiny minuscule part of their world tour, The Emotional Roadshow, for the second time this year was such an honor. Their live was full of emotion and energy. The way they perform and create their own sound is quite unique and it does nothing but inspire me to find my own unique style, personality and voice. (Here comes a secret: It also encourages me to hug the weirdo I have inside me.)

 

I cannot say “I love them”, because I actually don’t know them. But I can certainly scream and declare to the world I am totally in love with how good they are at what they do and how much they make me enjoy it.

 

So thank you Tyler and Josh (and whole tour team behind the stage) for making my trip!

(Sorry for the quality of my phone camera! It was the only clear photo of Tyler that I had)

Travelling and visiting unknown places always awakes my curiosity.  Surrounding myself of new sounds, people, landscapes and flavours gives my life a hint of fresh air and energy. It is very inspiring and I always come back home with my suitcase and pockets loaded with new ideas.

But dear readers, I do not intend to make a spoiler of how the trip was like in detail today as I have vlogged it all and I will be sharing it with you next week.

 

What I can share with you are my favourite outfits of the trip.

Here is my red, white and black uniform for the Twenty One Pilots show. For those of you who are not familiar with this band, these three are the official colours defining them.

    Now this is what I love about your blog: You give such an amazing insight into what you’ve been up to not just by your photos but also by your amazing style of writing. I think you captioned Oslo just right and it really brings across the autumny vibes of Norway. Loved the outfits too, I’ll definitely check out that dress at Zara.
