Langoyene, an island in the Oslofjord archipelago, is an undeveloped island a short public ferry ride from town, although the dock was a bit difficult to find tucked away next to industrial shipping and a grain silo. Scandanavia has the concept of "all man's rights," in which you can camp just about anywhere with no fees and few regulations; this island was a very popular destination for such camping, as well as a day destination to have a picnic and visit the beach. When every activity is so expensive, enjoying the outdoors for no cost at all is a refreshing change.

Hotels
Anker Hostel
This place is rather sterile, and doesn't come with much. We saved a bunch of money by having our own sheets and towels.
Points of interest
Holmenkollen
Great views and interesting history of skiing in this part of the world
Viking Ship Museum
3 very well-preserved Viking ship used for burials in the 9th century
The Royal Palace
Home to an even sillier monarchy than Sweden: Norway and Sweden were one country until 1905; in the divorce, Sweden kept the royal family. Norwegians voted that they wanted a king, so they called up a Danish prince to see if he'd take job. They're very proud that the new royal family thoroughly embraced skiing upon their move.
Restaurants
Delicatessen Grünerløkka
Strange name for a very good tapas restaurant. Mostly Spanish-style food, including the chorizo and chevre w/honey we got, although we incorporated some local flair by getting Norwegian meatballs. We had a late lunch/early dinner, and the place was nearly empty, but when we passed by again after a walk around the Grunerlokka neighborhood, it was crazy crowded.
