The adventures of Kurt, Sarah, Ethan, Reid & Leah


Norway is expensive and things we usually take for granted in the States are often twice or three times as expensive. But there is one thing that our family agrees is MUCH better here than in the States and is absolutely free – Norwegian drinking water.

Most of Oslo’s drinking water comes from a lake known as Maridalsvannet, which is just north of the city, and comes out of the tap icy cold and tastes clean and refreshing. I have already added tap water to the list of things that we will definitely miss once our year here is over.


  1. Haha, nice title!

  2. I wish I could take credit for that title but truth be told I first saw H2Oslo on the side of hundreds of water bottles that were being given away at the World’s Coolest Day” event. I think the local water utility is using the term for promotion purposes.
