I am making my 4th OSD trip on 7/12-7/18...but my first trip during the summer season! My son and I will spend 3 days in the Goteborg area and 2 days in Oslo.<p>I am hoping I can get a glimpse of a new S60 and pick up some FDC tag brackets. Planning on a little "cruzin" in a new XC60 for a day, then taking my friends Jonas and Anna out for a nice meal <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> and a few <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Spending 2 days in Oslo seeing the sights and experiencing some Norwegian 22 hours of daylight. <p>SO...I will be out of pocket for a week or so...but William will be available to handle things I'm sure.

Enjoy your trip Bob! I would have liked to meet up with you in Gothenburg but I'm in the U.S. now for a month and a half more or so before heading back "home."<p>Hope you have a wonderful vacation. I was in Oslo and the fjords to the northwest of it from June 21st-25th and it was quite something to have nearly 24 hour daylight. I hadn't experienced that since living in Iceland. Hope no one has stolen Munch's "The Scream" from the museum again...

Oh sure, couldn't hang with us in March. You'd rather go when the weather is nice. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Anyone who goes to Scandinavia for five days is not guaranteed nice weather. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Jonas will have company.... (universityvolvoOSD)

Bob, since you are heading north, I highly recommend the Nordic Watercolour Museum in Skärhamn if you or your son are into art. The little fishing village where the museum is located is very picturesque (I think I sent you a photo of my car there) and the drive off of the main highway is not long and crosses the interesting Tjörn bridge. We drove there and back after our meatball lunch.<p><A HREF="http://www.akvarellmuseet.org/Kultur_Default.aspx?id=47012" TARGET="_blank">http://www.akvarellmuseet.org/...47012</A>

Bob, have a great time in Oslo! We loved our visit there!<p>Check out the Oslo City Pass, with free admission to most museums, plus use of buses and trams.<p>We had a great time at the Kon-Tiki museum, the Norwegian Folk Museum, and the Viking Ship Museum. The last one is where you can see the ship featured in the short film at Epcot at the Norway pavilion.<p>Be sure to have a Ringnes beer for me! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">
