A Chicken in Paris





Being my third time in Paris, I knew my way around. I visited Notre Dame Cathedral but saw no sign of the famous hunchback.





My next stop was to the Louvre where I saw many of my favourites; sharing a smile with the Mona Lisa and taking myself back in time to Empress Josephine’s coronation.

Little Mermaid and the Rubber Chicken




I met a mermaid today; the little mermaid. She was quietly sitting at the edge of the harbour in Copenhagen, Denmark.





Copenhagen is a beautiful city filled with palaces, fountains, cobblestone streets and more. I even got to watch the changing of the guards at Ameliaborg Palace.

Sunshine warmed my rubber skin as I caught the ferry from Helsinki, Finland’s Market Square to Suomenlinna Sea Fortress. Which was just one of the many places we explored in Helsinki.

Roosting in the Hermitage








I love St. Petersburg, Russia. There are so many beautiful palaces and buildings. The history of this city rivals any Hollywood movie. 



The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg was the Winter Palace of Catherine the Great. It now is a world class museum. My favourite piece was the gold peacock clock.

Clucking Around Aarhus, Denmark










Today I visited Aarhus, Denmark. The Vikings first created a settlement in this location around 770AD. Aarhus is Denmark’s second largest city with a population of 325,000 and its own university.




There are many wonderful sculptures, fountains and pieces of art in Aarhus. Denmark’s largest cathedral is also here and a wonderful outdoor museum called Den Gamle By (old Town Museum).

Bosch and a Chicken

I visited the City of Den Bosch. 



The painter, Heronimus Bosch came from this area (his paintings included The Garden of Earthly Delights and Ship of Fools). He often painted animals wearing clothes to represent people. 



I love this statue which is made in the style of his paintings. Now I wonder if I can find a chicken statue?
