Consulting

Just started new project in Oslo, Norway. Fly in 3 days/w. Project travel policy says to use public transport. Taxi can be expensed, as a last resort, only in special cases. What the actual fuck!

I actually spent a couple of months in Oslo on a project and used public transport 99% of the time without any problems. Gets you just about everywhere. Oslo is also a great City for walking around

Sucks. BUT Public transport ain’t that bad in Norway - walk as much as you can, especially since it’s summer. Keeps you sane as well and gives you time to think

Oslo taxis are ridiculously expensive, so is Uber ..Id take public transportation, plus it’s pretty accessible and reliable/safe..also I used the regional train from the airport instead of the flytoget ...that’s a rip off..

Oslo is very expensive, so public transportation is about the only way to offset the expensive meals. I think I averaged around $100USD for dinner most nights

I’d definitely he approval to change the travel to 2/w on and 1 off or atleast at minimum 2 week on before fly back. Mon-thurs to there will get old fast

Norway is so expensive that’s probably why. A burger at McDonald’s is like 10.00 !

Gardermoen trains are great, taxis are ruinously expensive. Makes sense

Cut the flight cost to every 2w and you’ll have monies to travel with taxi. Seems insane to travel weekly

Public Transport will be your preferred mode anyway! Clean, performant- and the hike out to the airport takes at least twice as long by taxi!

I like my ILs but since my husband made comments about getting a hard time when I don't go with him to every family thing, I feel weird. I'm tired from my job and kids and sometimes I want the break.
