from norway to sweden

When you move to a new country, there is a lot of information and tips that you get about your new location.

One of the tips about living in Oslo is that Sweden is good for shopping for clothes and alcohol (because is much, much cheaper).
Since Norway is one of the most expensive countries in the world, that information was important, though not a big surprise.

Though this trip's goal was to meet friends, we did use the opportunity to do some purchasing.
From Oslo to Kristinehamn, Sweden, it takes around 3 hours driving with no traffic, which means leaving on a Friday afternoon is to be avoided! The scenery is beautiful, especially around this time of the year, when spring is in full bloom and the days are long.
