Thought for the day…” Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if you remember to turn on the light”.
” A negative mind will never give you a positive life”.
Today’s photo comes from the Danish capital, Copenhagen. Around 474 islands make up Denmark, but there are also the islands of the Faroes and Greenland, which also belong to Denmark (although are autonomous). The highest point in Denmark is only 170m (Mollehoj). Some Danes joke that summer in Denmark is different to winter in Denmark because the rain is warmer. And did you know that the fairy tale books from the author Hans Christian Anderson have been translated into more languages than any other author? And more Danish trivia….Walt Disney, after visiting the amusement park Tivoli in Copenhagen, gained the inspiration to start his own park, Disneyland? The famous Sydney opera house was designed by a Danish architech too. And that famous children’s toy, LEGO comes from the Danish words ‘leg gott’ which means ‘play well’. As an estimated 320 BILLION Lego bricks have been sold then it works out that every human being in the world owns/has owned 56 Lego bricks. According to the Lego website, it would take around 40 billion lego bricks to make a column tall enough to reach the moon. Not made of lego bricks are these colourful buildings in the city centre of Copenhagen…..
and another photo from the archives….arriving at Nadi, Fiji. Early morning sunshine, but before it got too hot…..
