We went to Drøbak as well, amazing we didn't meet up its not that large hehehe. But we DID make the ferry out to Oscarsborg and take a trip around the fortress.

Too many good memories here for words. The champagne picnic was just so much fun and really got us into the mood for a trip to Dubliner to meet even more friends. What a night!
