Flat in Oslo, Norway

Would you like to get to know Oslo? I am a retired woman, who live in a small ( 67 m2 ), but comfortable flat in a very central and residential part of the town - just between the Royal Castle and the Vigeland Sculpture Park. You can easily walk from the house to the city center in 15 minutes, to most of our museums and to the waterfront of the Oslofjord. Oslo is a "compact" city. You do not need a car in Oslo. If you want to go to the surrounding area we have good inexpensive public transportations. (Note that I have no car, and do not want to borrow yours, if you have one !) - I am used to walking and I use public transport when I am on holiday!  My 37 year old daughter would sometimes like to travell with me. As you can see from the picture, the bedroom has two seperate beds, but in adition a medium tall person han sleep cosely on our sofa!
In the summertime Oslofjord has lovely islands  (for picnic or svimming) that you can reach by  local boats, and there are nice waking trails in the woods close to town (and they are quite safe!). Oslo is also ideal for short trips to the famous fjords on the westcoast of Norway.
