the part about tap water vs bottled water is contradictory and wrong : "Do drink tap water instead of bottled water, which does nothing but drain your pocket of much needed kroners. "

so please correct


What's that section on "most expensive city"? The first part says its #15, then second part of the sentence says #1.  ?!?? Shoness 08:37, 23 April 2007 (EDT)


Hey, so, that was a really really fast first draft, there. I get the feeling it was copy-and-pasted from somewhere else. Anonymous contributor, are you sure that's your original work? -- Evan 14:21, 6 Nov 2003 (PST)

Did a google search on some of the phrases, no match. Doesn't mean it's original, but it was easy to check. Just because your paranoid doesn't mean it's not copyrighted (copywritten?). Majnoona

Majnoona it is not nice to label someone "paranoid" just because they ask a question. Since we try to be both polite and correct here, please spell YOU'RE = YOU ARE properly because "your paranoid" is nothing like what you meant. (cuddlyable3) 84.210.139.189 08:27, 29 November 2006 (EST)
She's my wife, she can call me paranoid. Anyways, it's a common term for being extra careful with copyright; see [1]. --Evan 17:10, 29 November 2006 (EST)
I did a google, too. There's spelling mistakes and a casual style -- I think my initial worries were unfounded. It'd still be nice to hear from the author, though. P.S. "copyrotten". -- Evan 16:45, 6 Nov 2003 (PST)

_____

Answer: No, it was not copied and pasted. I live in Oslo, so it was easy to write. Naturally, I looked at some other sources to get some details right, but it is not copied or pasted from somewhere. Good thing you are checking though...


Great! Thanks for confirming that. You can take our double-checking as a compliment! I lookforward to reading more. Majnoona

centre -> center[edit]

I converted all the instances of "centre" back to "center". We prefer American spelling. --Evan 11:01, 29 Dec 2003 (PST)

What's wrong with correct English spelling?

See Wikitravel:Spelling.
There's nothing wrong with it. It's just easier to have one way to spell things in Wikitravel, and by default it's American spelling. By having a single standard, we keep from having needless edits and arguments.
It's not like it's wrong to use Commonwealth spelling -- it'll just get edited to American spelling. See the Wikitravel:spelling page for more details. --Evan 11:43, 29 Dec 2003 (PST)

Olympen closed[edit]

I deleted all references to Olympen (aka "lompa") as, alas, it's closed. It might reopen, but in a different version than the place we used to know and love.

Get out[edit]

I remowed the destination listed under further away. Since Get out is for day-trips, and sugestion of where to head next. Bodø and Lofoten is to far from Oslo to be listed in the get out section. ViMy 17:37, 31 May 2009 (EDT)

border control[edit]

When I drove from Sweden into Norway (over the E6 autoway) I got stripsearched and locked up in a jail for over 40 minutes and they made me undress, my car was taken apart (wheels of), lugage was completely messed around with. very really annoying. and for no apartant other reason than being either from Amsterdam and/or not white. Big fat warning, Norwegian border folks are nazi's. 84.215.87.136

Stay safe & healthy[edit]

Are we talking about the same country here? oslo is not a dangerous place!

It's the most drug ridden city in the Scandinavia, but yeah, while most of it is factually correct, it does seem a bit excessive. Not sure how to tone it down while keeping the integrity, I'd hate to remove good advices. --Stefan (sertmann) talk 16:13, 11 February 2010 (EST)
