Arrival/Check-in: If I had chosen to stay in the city center, the Flytoget airport express train could have transported me from Oslo Central Station to Gardermoen Airport in about 20 minutes, but why risk it? I had an early morning flight out of Oslo, so I opted instead to spend the night before my flight at the Radisson SAS Airport Hotel. I like Radisson SAS: Their hotels in Scandinavia are reliably consistent. This one was no exception. After a smooth check-in at the individual reception kiosks — there is no main front desk — my wheelie bag and I were on our way upstairs. (18/20)
The city took its name from Athena, goddess of wisdom, strategy and war, and protector of the city. The financial, political and administrative center of the country and an all-powerful city-state in antiquity, Athens is a major center of culture. A visit to the first-ever museum dedicated to Byzantium, a stroll around the National Garden and a trip to the Olympeion archaeological site will take you back through time.
Arrival/Check-in: When I arrived, I was met by the owner, Pat Azinger, who happily, personally showed me around his historic boutique hotel. The inn was established in 1891, and the original certification was framed and hung on the wall as proof. (20/20)
