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!

Read more, watch a movie, and purchase shares in the project here!

It's kinda like the Trojin Horse... only it's a moose. It'll be cool if you can go inside it!

they should have little elevators runing up the legs, so people can see through the moose's eyes. like the Statue of liberty used to have. (no longer open to the public. aw.)

I totally think that it will take in loads of $, if they go through with it. Maybe I will try to purchase a share...nah.

I have to send that to my LA-lit teacher; she's obsessed with moose.

so they're dedicating this to nature but also building it entirely of wood?
