My best sightseeing-tip would be to take a walk along the Akerselva river, all the way from Kjelsås to the city centre.
Beer/alcohol (as well as a lot of other things...) is quite expensive in Norway, but there are several places where you can get a beer (0,5 litres) for NOK30. Avoid the main street (Karl Johan) if you're looking for cheap beer, as you might have to pay as much as NOK70 for a beer. You will find one of the cheaepest beers in a small pub called Choice in the Grønland area. NOK 29 Random clientell but often a good atmosphere, allright if cheap beer is all you need.
If you are coming to Oslo and don't want to spend too much money- theres alternatives! You can have delicious vegan food and nice people in the "Hausmania" Culture House, Hausmansgate 42- the name of the non-profit volunteer cafe is "BlackEyedBean". There is one special dish and one soup of the day, besides that wafers and yummy huge sandwiches. In the same house you can find free internet access at HUMLA, in the same floor.
In the ex-squat "Blitz", Pilestredet 10 you can get tasty vegan and vegetarian sandwiches in the cafe for really reasonable prices.
Inside Oslo you can travel by localtrain, tram, bus and boat (summertimes). The charge is 22 NOK (2.50 euro) when you buy the ticked in advance. You get it at machines, NSB salem NARVESEN-Kiosks and at the central ticket office Trafikanten.
If you want to travel around I recommand to buy a DAGSKORT (60 NOK = 7 Euro) with is valid for the next 24 hours from stamped or a "7 dagers kort" with is valid for 1 week (cost 210 NOK=24 euro) Cheaper tickets for children and youths until the age of 19, ask when you buy!
Write an intro paragraph about this State/region. Why should members come? What can they expect, travel wise and Hospitality Club wise?
