Scratching Around the South Side of Mauritius

The South of Mauritius has Highlands which are home to the beautiful waterfall and the Seven Coloured Sands.

The seven coloured sands are in a small dune area. The chemistry of the soil creates the different colours. What is remarkable  is that the colours never mix, they always remain separate.

I also went on a local rum distillery tour. I didn’t taste any because I’m not of age yet.

I did Taste many flavours of tea after the tour at the Bois Cheri’s Tea Plantation. Unfortunately they didn’t have any dry grain to eat with my tea.

Port Louis on the Fly

I had a busy day in Port Louis.

I started out at the Caudan Waterfront where I visited the Blue Penny Museum. Apparently, rubber chickens get free intermission when smuggled in Mom’s purse.

Before The Dodo bird became extinct, Mauritius was the only place they lived. You can find all manner of Dodo likenesses around the island.

I flapped my way up the many steps to the citadel where I had a great view of the city.

I was greatly disturbed by the carnage I observed when walking through the meat and poultry market.

Overall, Port Louis is a very fun city to visit.

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.

Feathers and Finns

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).
