For those Foggy Followers who don't follow via social media here is a brief write up of the recent trip to Copenhagen with lovely sitter Alessia. She was going to Copenhagen to see friends and took Foggy along for the ride. Foggy had such a fantastic time he wants to tell you all about it!
Foggy and Alessia flew from Heathrow (flying.....squeeeeeeeeee!!! *Flying without wings*) Foggy LOVES flying.
On the first day of the trip Foggy's gang walked around the city centre for a while, and went to have a look at what it is considered the symbol of Copenhagen, the little Mermaid.
Then, they then went to visit some biologists in their lab at the University of Copenhagen. They are Anna’s friends/fellow biologists. They work on research studying the structure function of ion channels of the cells. This research is especially useful to understand and cure diseases such as osteopetrosis, heart arrhythmias and epilepsy. Obviously....Foggy lent a hand!!
Day two was relaxed; lazy lie in morning and in the afternoon they went to the second oldest amusement park in the world, which is called Tivoli gardens. Foggy loved it! Lovely and twinkly...very pretty. When Foggy saw the sleigh he whispered to Alessia *Is Father Christmas here already?*.......
Day three involved a bit more sightseeing. Foggy's gang took a short trip to the Louisiana Museum, north of the city centre: http://www.louisiana.dk. They saw an exhibition by Olafur Eliasson called “the Model Room” http://olafureliasson.net/archive/artwork/WEK100984/model-room) . Foggy was interested in the pretty lights but didn't really understand....this one was for Alessia and friends. Chance for some pretty pictures though.
On the last day retail therapy was a must....Foggy's gang visited a department store called Illums Bolighus.....Foggy had loads of fun on the escalators!! (http://www.illumsbolighus.dk).
Alessia told Sally - 'We were trying to get Foggy to ride the escalator on his own, to the amusement of the people around us'
The plane on the return journey was put on hold and circled over London for quite a while....perfect opportunity for Foggy to look out at the light of London. WOW....Foggy was impressed.
Here are a few more photos of Foggy's time in Copenhagen. he would like to say thank you very much to Alessia for taking him to such a lovely place and supporting his World Tour. Foggy also wants to say thank you to Alessia's friend Anna, on who's head he was balanced on in most of the photos!!
*Let me see, let me see!!*

Please keep on following Foggy's World Tour....he is determined that, with Sally's help, he can raise £10k and fund much needed research.
