I love Norway, but I really cant af-fjord it.


I just made that up. Here is a sample of cost:

Big Mac: 85 NOK, or roughly $14. We didnt get that, obviously.
French fries, one small, one medium: 42 NOK, or $7

Hotel room, TINY, with breakfast and shower: 755 NOK, or $125. (for 2 people)
Hostel, two bunks, shared bathroom with hair on the shower floor, with breakfast: 680 NOK, or $113. (for 2 people)
Hostel, shared with 6 other people, shared bathroom, no breakfast, 2 nights: 680 NOK, or $113.

Pizza lunch buffet: 99 NOK or $16.
Water is $2 minimum, and one place wanted $6. I actually told that lady no thanks, and she put it back in the fridge. You can drink the tap water though so thats good.

A couple nights ago we bought a pizza for 200 NOK or $33, and we ate it for dinner and it sat out until the next day at 3pm but we ate it for dinner again anyway. Here it is at its freshest: Kabob pizza, with lamb and mayonaissey sauce.

We got free breakfast with our hostel on Sunday and on Monday and so we ate like kings and it was very awesome.

Wellingtons or rubber boots would be helpful since it has rained the entire time we have been in west Norway, but those are $200 USD. If you go to a clothing store, anything that is sweatery is $200. Everything else shirty is $100. we havent been shopping a ton, but this is what I have seen so far.

I wanted to buy a hat because of the one I lost, but those are minimum $40, and they arent as cute as mine :(.

hmmmmm thats all I have to say about that, this place is just very expensive. And there doesnt seem to be a way to cheap-out because even McDonalds is too much. I guess the cheapest thing so far has been the flight.
