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…..

Thought for the day….” If at first you don’t succeed, skydiving is not for you. “
The year is flying by, and now it is already July. What happened to the first 6 months of 2012????? Off to somewhere warm and sunny for today’s photo, and another photo where timing was everything. The photo comes from Nadi airport in Fiji, and shows the morning arrival from Korea, just about to touch down. Good thing that I was there early because the flight arrived ahead of time. The early morning light and the angle was just right for this shot. About 850 000 people live in Fiji, which is made up of over 330 islands. Tourism and sugar are the main industries, and the airport at Nadi is busy day and night with international arrivals, with about 1.2 million passengers a year.
