Today was the day Team Hopping Beaver (a.k.a Dave, Hugo and myself) went on a mission to shoot NATCHA (nature) in all it's natural splendour in the mountainous north of Oslo for our ecotourism story!
The sun was shining, the snow was glistening, and it almost felt as if I was in Canada. It all very much resembled Whister, British Columbia!
It all started with a subway ride to the very end of the line.
When we got to the station, we walked into one of Oslo's national parks. Here, we see a Davous Fannacious and a Hugolous Pilon-Larocia in their natural habitat: on top of a frozen lake, filming the surrounding scenery.
We also filmed within the forest itself, clearly putting the pro in professional.
After about an hour at this location, we got back on another train and rode it to IT'S most northern point. We were determined to get a golden shot of all of Oslo from a bird's eye view.
...which we FOUND! Dave decided to climb on top of the subway shelter in order to film it properly.
It was so awesome to see the city from way up there!!!
After we got the money shot, we got back on the train, rode it 4 stops down, and got off at Holmenkollen, the location of the ski championships!!!
Unfortunately, during our filming session in the forest, we didn't see much wildlife. But we did find a mammoth at the bottom of the ski track.
And we spotted Norwegian royalty.
And! I even channeled my inner child and threw myself down an icicle slide. (I now know why my back is sore.)
After about 5 hours of brisk fresh air and wintery fun, it was time to go back to the hotel for some complimentary tea and well-deserved chillen tymez.
End Day 3!
