Shoot Three - "Amsterdam III"

Poland! Well, Michelle was thrilled to see her roots featured in "Where in the World!" Also, adding their guesses were Peyton, Jim, Joani, and Mike!

"Bruges Church"

While in Amsterdam, we took a side trip to see Bruges. Unfortunately our city guide was not very good so we left him and explored the historic town on our own. One of the places we did visit was a church where the sculpture, "Madonna and Child" was on display. This very same artwork was reclaimed from Hitler and featured in the movie, "Monument Men!"

Where in the World?

Here are some interesting facts about various countries of the world. Just where would I be?

often described as the "Land of the Midnight Sun", because during the summer months of late May through to late July 

home to a number of Arctic animals such as reindeer, wolverines, polar bear, the puffin bird and the Arctic fox.

home to the world's longest road tunnel, with a length of 24.5 km's (15.3 miles) the tunnel has become a tourist attraction in itself.

the troll plays a significant part in its folklore. The troll is an ugly, messy, nasty creature that lives in caves or forests and will turn to stone if sunlight hits them. 

Football (soccer) has the highest participation level of any sport. The winter sports of biathlon and cross-country skiing are the most eagerly followed.

is the most successful nation in the world at the Winter Olympics. The country has collected the most medals of any country over the Games' history and it is one of just three countries (along with Austria and Liechtenstein) who have won more medals at the Winter Games than at the Summer Games.

Interesting Fact. . .

A comet's tail always points away from the sun.   

Leaving on a humorous note, I hope!

I finally got my head together, 
but now my body is falling apart.
