Buy Me a Ticket to Sweden!
Some savvy Swedes have come up with a novel way to attract tourists to their country's wilderness. They plan to build the world's largest moose. (Now why didn't I think of that?) By 2009, the enormous wooden creature will grace the top of Mount Vithatten. According to its creators, it will be "a destination for people all over the world, [and] a monument dedicated to wilderness, nature and the king of the forest." Awesome. (Though I'm still not sure if it's all just a hoax.)
I may sound like I'm poking fun at the moose-builders, but I'm not. The next time I'm in Sweden I will DEFINITELY plan a visit!
