This is it! The moment I saw a similar fiery sunset pass over Oslo at the same place where Edvard Munch stood that inspired him to paint his most famous painting, The Scream (Skrik in Norwegian, literally ‘shriek’).
It was pure luck that I happened to be here on a day where the sunset was this amazing. Summer in Oslo can be unpredictable. It’s either super hot without a cloud in sight, or cloudy, and rainy. But, the day I visited Ekebergparken sculpture park, I couldn’t have asked for better conditions.
Apart from a few couples passing through, I pretty much had this place all to myself. I sat down and savoured the moment (very rare during my travels) and reflected on what had brought me here. I thought about what desk back in Australia, where I had pinned up a large A2 poster of Munch’s painting, during my university days. Who would’ve thought that years later, I’d be in Oslo on a language holiday with @cactus_language_training , living a similar moment to Munch. All because I wanted to learn Norwegian. I knew this was exactly where I was supposed to be.
What you ever had a surreal moment like this? Which language are you dying to learn? I’d love to hear about it. Share it below.
