The city of Oslo has beautiful old buildings like the Parliament,
The University with an Aula
with paintings of Edvard Munch famous for his painting ‘The Scream‘
You can also visit the Rathus
a massive, dominant building at the harbour.
It took 19 years to build.
Its chimes you can hear every hour.
In this hall every year on 10th December the Nobel Prize is given out.

‘He has made everything beautiful in it’s time.’
and to bring the beauty from all over the world,
Kew Gardens is celebrating the Orchid Festival until March 10th.
It really is a festival of colours, sounds and beauty.
This year there are Orchids
from the world’s most biodiverse county: Colombia.
Breathtaking displays of orchids,
a sweet smell,
accompanied with Colombian music,
even the cacti have hats on….
Let me take you through with this donkey:
Animals made include a toucan, a swimming turtle…..

A day out works wonders – like a mini holiday.
You come back refreshed and relaxed.
I tried it for you to give you experienced advice.
We went for one day and night to Cambridge, the famous University town.
Cambridge is a city on the River Cam in eastern England, home to the prestigious University of Cambridge, dating to 1209. University colleges include King’s, famed for its choir and towering Gothic chapel, as well as Trinity, founded by Henry VIII, and St John’s, with its 16th-century Great Gate. University museums have exhibits on archaeology and anthropology, polar exploration, the history of science and zoology.
Walking along the river Cam are many bridges- hence the name Cambridge.
We came along punters and we signed up for some punting.
What an amazing experience, what fun!

The Sky was blue,
the weather was hot,

Go for a mini holiday,
do something different at the spur of the moment,
enjoy every moment
and have fun.
You feel refreshed, relaxed,
ready for the new week!
