Legoland

imageIf you had Lego as a kid, Denmark has the theme park for you. If you didn’t have Lego as a kid, I’m very sorry you were deprived, but at least you still can join in on the experience! Legoland with all its 60 million blocks is a real thing!

Stonehenge

Location MapAn ancient wonder of the world, Stonehenge. I remember as a kid having a book on ancient wonders including the Pyramids of Giza. Maybe Stonehenge isn’t quite as big or as famous, but it’s an equally big mystery as to how the enormous stones were set by people with such basic tools.

Gargantuan April snow walls on the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Crossing

Location MapThe Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Crossing is a unique way to traverse a mountain range. Definitely the strangest crossing I’ve done and easily the most accessible. You can rely on several different public transport links to take you over 2,500m and through the mountains. In the warmer months it would be possible to walk and camp some sections. For me though I was curious to see the giant snow walls in spring which often tower over the buses – multiple stories high.
