Our Adventures in Norway!

Norway Norway Norway! Our first location for our OOH EURONASTY Tour 2014! We’re always super excited to arrive in Oslo, Norway because it’s such gorgeous place but it sucks that the first place we arrives suffers from our deep jetlag. As you can see from this video, we barley did anything because we kept waking up so early from jet lag that it too dark outside to film. Plus, nothing was open. If any of you have travelled a long distance and experienced jet lag you’ll know what we mean because you feel like the lamest person on the planet falling asleep at 5 or 6 pm. We tried really hard to push ourselves to go on adventures because we only had 2 days in Norway (not counting our fanmeet) so we did what the EYK Crew loves to do, walk and walk and walk and explore.

A couple things about Norway: apart from our deep lameness, the food in Oslo is delicious but super duper rich. Man, there is a lot of meat. Meat meat meat! Which helps to lull you into sleep and is totally counterproductive when fighting exhaustion. I will say the one massive disappointment is that I didn’t get to eat any dumplings in Oslo because they were sold out at the place we went. I love how almost every culture has a different take on dumplings, mostly because I LOVE LOVE LOVE DUMPLINGS!!!! The Korean take on dumplings (mandu) is very different in flavour and texture from the Japanese or Chinese, even though they are all Asian countries. The same goes for Norwegian dumplings vs other European dumplings. I’m curious if you’re from a country with dumplings if you can post a pic or let us know the name of your dumpling so I can drool through the computer at them. POLAND YOU’RE GOING TO KILL ME WITH YOUR PEROGIES!

Another note: all throughout our Ooh Euro Nasty Tour we stayed in different homes rather than hotels, thanks to AirBNB. We’re not fond of staying in hotels, which don’t really show you what a culture is like. Most of them have a standard of austerity, with little glimmers of the culture through occasional decorations, but none of it really feels sincere. Since we’re all about experiencing different cultures, staying in someone’s home is a much better option for us.

The home we stayed in was very cozy and intimate. It had a gorgeous spiral staircase, comfy leather couch facing out into the trees, and a nice little balcony. I liked seeing all of the decorations and food to get a better understanding of the person who lives here. The owner said she was vegan, so we should clean up thoroughly if we cook meat. Buddha statues were around the house. Juicers and spirulina in the kitchen. We found a book on tarot readings with a deck of tarot cards. Posters of inspirational quotes around the house. Shower stall says you are beautiful just the way you are. So, no only was the owner a vegan… this lady was also a hippy. No shame in that. We’re dangerously close to being hippies as well. Some will argue we’ve clearly crossed that line ages ago. Ha!

Anyhow, we took some pictures from our stay in Norway as well. You’ll see our AirBNB place, our favourite coffee shop, and us wandering around and taking lots of pictures. We took many more pictures this year than we did last year. We had four photographers this time! Each of us with a different style of taking pictures. Hopefully you don’t mind a picture dump here:

Otherwise, we’ve also got some extra scenes that didn’t make the final cut, in our blooper reel here!

And lastly we’ve got some exclusive videos on our app so check them out if you’re interested. They’re not up yet! We’re gonna upload them bit by bit.

One last thing I wanted to mention: you see the thumbnail for this video, of us all around in a weird selfie? This is a new selfie I’m trying to make popular. Well, I think it’s new. I’m sure someone somewhere else in the world is doing it, but I didn’t really see it catch on. It’s the ugly selfie. Forget about trying to make yourself look good. Point your phone up to the sky and everyone huddle around the perimeter. I think it makes for a more fun photo. Not as flattering, but loads more fun.

  1. I’d be tempted to hide a thank you surprise for the house owner somewhere. AirBnB is a real interesting concept, I don’t know if I’d be brave enough to let strangers live in my home though?

  5. Did you hear “What does the fox say” just as often as you did last time? (I don’t hope this is a painful reminder)

    The home looks lovely, I kinda wish that was my home, especially the stairs.. I want the stairs.

  7. Hahahaaa, nøff nøff! It sounds way cuter when you guys say it ^^
    Jetlag is absolutely horrible, I had it for almost a week when I first landed in Korea. I was in constant derp mode, plus dizzy and nauseous. Still don’t know how I managed to talk to people that week, so huge applause for you all doing so much in Oslo! I just moved here this august from Bergen, and it’s really growing on me. The dildo place is close to my place, I walk past it everyday to school, haha! Ooo, so naaasty.
    And actually, hippie in Norwegian is just hippi.
    Thanks for the video, can’t wait to see the other ones soon :D

  10. Great video, I really like how the photos were edited in with the video and music, top notch! The photos on the blogs are really great too, the one with SooZee and Martina’s hair flying is hilarious!

    The food looks delicious. The restaurants that you ate at had a feeling of serving traditional meals so this could explain the lack of veg (except potatoes) available. Traditionally in northern countries (even in Canada), autumn and winter meals have less produce included because historically fruit and vegetables weren’t available in the winter except as preserves or as stored roots.

    Cyber_3 – Breakfast is always the hardest meal for me when I travel and have a kitchen available, what new jam and jellies and breads can I try? So lazy and so much choice!

  11. Doorway! XD Lame joke and I’m laughing like an idiot.

    I haven’t been traveling for awhile but last time when we were in Thailand I suffered from jet lag. First day I felt really sick and I just slept while others were swimming. Second day wasn’t so terrible though.

  13. Leigh to Martina “can I sit on your lap?” Martina “No because then you would be sitting in my chair.
    Norway, one of my great great grandparents was from Norway and I have always wanted to visit. Seeing this video of your beautiful city makes me want to go even more.
    Airbnb has gotten my attention between EYK, Korean Englishman and The Muse. They are marketing well.

  14. Am I a weirdo since I’ve never gotten jetlag… When I went to Japan from Finland, nothing. The other way around, nothing. I mean I was tired but more like normal way of tiredness. It was quite easy to stay up until nighttime. :D
    I hope someday you can stop by in Finlad too. (The Finnish pig says nöf nöf. ;D)
