JAX to OSL
On Sunday, Aug 3 morning we left Jacksonville International Airport and flew to Newark Liberty International Airport to Terminal A. We had a lay over of several hours at EWR and therefore we had some snacks and ate early dinner at the airport.
We found a Travelex currency exchange office right at the airport. After speaking with the agents we were able to get exchange some American Dollars to both Norwegian Kroner (NOK or NKr) and Swedish Kronors (SEK or SKr). The advantage with them was if he had excess krone or kronor we could exchange back to USD without fees.
Then at 8 PM boarded the United flight to Oslo, Norway. The flight was about 7 hours long and we ate some dinner and early morning snack before we landed in Oslo, Norway in Oslo Gardermoen International Airport. It was bit cloudy and we went through immigration and customs and picked up our luggage.
We then bought tickets form the Flytoget train office to get to Oslo S (Oslo Central Station). We boarded the train and arrived at Oslo S after about 30 minutes. Just about that time it started to rain.
