The thing we found in the church

Miranda

[August 2012] We went to a small town called Marstal in Aero Island in Denmark. This town is more for the people living there rather than for tourists like in Aeroskobing. But it was worth a journey. When we went into the main church there, I was surprised to see quite a few models of …

Jazz Festival in Aero Island

Miranda

[August 2012] Danish people seem to like jazz. When we arrived Ribe, the oldest town, their jazz festival just ended and when we were in Aero Island, the festival was in full swing. It seemed an annual event. I am not a big fan of jazz, but I listened to a band called ‘Summer Time’. …

Andersen Museum

Miranda

[August 2012] Odense in Denmark is the town where Andersen was born and there is a good museum about him there. The first thing I noticed was that in the Japanese leaflet given there, there is a heading saying ‘Andersen’s looks’. He was as ugly as that they have to make this heading. He himself was …

Walking in Odense

Miranda

[August 2012] In Odense in Denmark, I followed the walking tour route in my guidebook. It is a fairly big city with the population of a bit more than 150,000, but in the old town you can see pretty stone paved streets with colourful houses. It is really like a Andersen’s fairly tale world. I noticed …
