Vacation Day - Thursday, 10 May

It's Day 1 of our vacation, and we spent most of it on airplanes.  We flew British Airways from San Diego (leaving at 8:05 p.m. on Wednesday) and arrived in London at 2:30 p.m.. Then we caught another British Airways plane in London (depart at 5:15 p.m.) and flew to Oslo, arriving at 8:25 p.m. if all went well :)

The Gardermoen Airport for Oslo is quite a ways from the city - it's a 720 kroner (about $120) taxi trip or a 82 kroner (about $15) train trip each, plus a short taxi trip to the hotel.  We will probably do the train trip.

Our hotel in Oslo is the Scandic Hotel Sjolyst.

When I booked the hotel, there was very little choice for a reasonably priced hotel.  We hope to be to the hotel by 10:30 p.m. and the first order of business is likely to be SLEEP.  The hotel description says that they have free wireless access, so this may be the last time I am able to check my email, read blogs, and see what momentous news was announced at the NGS Conference in Cincinnati.

When this is posted, we should be just arriving at the Oslo airport.
